Who doesn’t like barbeque? Come to beautiful Washington Island on Friday and Saturday, August 28th & 29th, for the fourth annual Death’s Door Bar-B-Q (DDBBQ) at the Washington Island Airport.

Presented by the Washington Island Ferry Line and the Washington Island Chamber of Commerce, DDBBQ is a KCBS-Sanctioned Competition with 100% certified judges and $7,500 in prize money.

Death’s Door Bar-B-Q opens to the public at the Washington Island Airport on Saturday, August 29th at 10 am, with free admission, arts & crafts, kids’ activities, live music, food vendors, and of course – Barbequed Chicken, Pork, Pork Ribs, and Beef Brisket as sold by the DDBBQ competitors.
