Grilling Season is Here


It’s that time of year again – time to clean off the grills and put away the snowblowers. Join Minnesota Monthly to start grilling season right at the 5th Annual Grillfest, held May 14-15 at CHS Field in St. Paul. Celebrate the return of warm weather by sampling your favorite grilled foods, summer wines, and specialty beers.

Come out to test the hottest grills, gather recipes, and learn tips and tricks to barbeque like a pro. Sample different sauces and rubs to see what pairs best with your favorite meats. Grilling demonstrations will be taking place each day for guests to learn how to out-grill the neighbors. 

Not a griller? Not a problem, everyone is welcome to taste grilled foods by some of the best local companies. And if you’re looking to get into grilling, there will be special deals on grills and products that will impress your friends and family, along with a chance to win a large Big Green Egg.

As Minnesotans, we only have three months of nice weather (if we’re lucky) so don’t miss out on Grillfest to make the most of your summer barbeques during a tasty and (hopefully) sunny weekend!

Bonus: visit GrillFestival.com and click on the Metro Transit banner to claim your FREE ride to Minnesota Monthly’s GrillFest.

Tickets are $45 online and $50 at the door.
Your Grillfest ticket covers food, wine, and beer samplings at all of the booths and feature areas.
