Avon, Colorado – The Pitmaster BBQ and Music Fest– a TMAC Event ( – is coming to Avon, Colorado which is the gateway to Beaver Creek Resort and will feature some of the Nation’s top BBQ Pitmasters and live concerts headlined by Country, Rock and Blues music’s current hit makers.

The two-day event will take place at the prominent Avon Performance Pavilion and Harry A. Nottingham Park – a year-round cultural and entertainment venue – beginning at 1:00 PM each day.

“Amazing BBQ and summertime go hand-in-hand and I can’t think of a better place to experience both than the beautiful Colorado mountains,” said Leslie Roark Scott, Pitmaster of UBONS BBQ and BBQ Princess. “The PITMasters plan to bring specialty menus representing the best BBQ their state has to offer – an event not to be missed.”

The festival will feature the unique regional tastes of barbecue from southern vinegar-based sauces to dry rubs combined with Coloradoan’s favorite foods, craft beers and spirits, and other favorites. It is a cashless payment event and wristbands come with the power to purchase as you enter the gates with BBQ Tokens each token equal to $1 currency.
