The Best Dam Barbecue Challenge takes place in Bicentennial Park – right in the middle of Old Historic Downtown Boulder City.

Located immediately adjacent to City Hall, Bicentennial Park is located at 999 Colorado Street, Boulder City, Nevada 89005 and is comprised of 7 acres of beautiful green grass and trees.

One of the park’s most attractive features is the Gazebo Bandstand, built for the Bicentennial Celebration, is an excellent covered facility for all of the events that take place during the Best Dam Barbecue event!

Directions from Las Vegas

If you are coming from most anywhere in the Las Vegas area, simply take the US-93 heading SOUTH toward Boulder City. After entering city limits (just after the Railroad Pass Casino), you have two options…one of which is to continue straight to our event through downtown Boulder City as the street undergoes a name change to Nevada Way. If you select this route, you will cruise through historic Downtown Boulder City and as you reach the end of the shops, you will begin to see the event in front of you.  The event begins at the corner of Nevada Way and Colorado Street (which will be blocked off to thru-traffic), so just find a place to park and come on in!

Directions from Arizona

From the Arizona side of Hoover Dam, take the US-93 heading NORTH toward Boulder City. Turn LEFT onto Colorado Street and continue for approximate 1/2 of a mile and you’ll find yourself at Bicentennial Park!
