Close your eyes and picture the perfect summer setting: the warm rays of the sun gently warming your face, a cool drink in your hand, the sizzling sounds of the grill, and searing mouth-watering creations. Welcome to the 11th annual GrillFest— a weekend celebrating the very best parts of the summer season.
GrillFest will return to CHS Field on Saturday, June 3 & Sunday, June 4, from 1 to 5 pm each day.
Test out the best grills, gather recipes, and learn how to barbecue like a pro while sampling the best burgers, beer, sweet treats, seltzers, Bloody Marys, margaritas, summer wines, and more. Play outdoor games, find Minnesota-made art and gifts, listen to music, and enjoy perfect weather. The best part? It’s all included with the purchase of your ticket.
