GlobalPittsburgh International Barbecue Coming June 20 at Bayardstown Social Club, Celebrating Shared Culture of Grilled Foods Around the World. Win Airline Tickets!

Every culture enjoys a tradition of grilling foods, usually meats, over an open fire, often at a time of celebration or fellowship. And while these traditions may have different names and different twists in Asian, African, Middle Eastern, European, Latin and certainly American cultures, the concept is the same, and it has come to be known as barbecue.

The first ever GlobalPittsburgh International Barbecue will be held Saturday, June 20, 2015 at Bayardstown Social Club in the Strip District, bringing together people who enjoy eating these grilled foods with the people and cultures who prepare them in a way that will recognize, celebrate and enlighten the entire community about this shared experience.

The goal of the event is to highlight and celebrate the common themes that unite people who may come from different countries or speak different languages but who share this common experience in a way that encourages cultural awareness and understanding, diversity and inclusion, and ultimately acceptance and embracing of those different from ourselves.

Attendees will be able to sample grilled foods provided by vendors and food trucks. In addition, everyone attending will be automatically entered in a drawing for two round-trip tickets to Europe or throughout North America on Delta Airlines, as well as for other great prizes.

Tickets, which include coupons for food samples, are $30 for current paid GlobalPittsburgh members, $40 for non-members, and $10 for children ages 5-10. Admission is free for children 4 and under. Prices go up after June 1. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets now.

Six sampling passes to six different food vendors representing international barbecue for adults and two sampling passes for children 5-12. Smaller children will not be getting sampling passes with their free admission but their parents could certainly share their grilled foods. Additional sampling passes will be available to purchase at the event.

The event will be held in an outdoor space that can accommodate 200-250 people, food vendors, food trucks, a safe area for grilling, bands and DJs, craft vendors and cultural performances.
