Rio Rancho’s annual Pork & Brew BBQ State Championship – complete with live entertainment, fun jumps, pig races, kids’ corral, and, of course, food galore – is March 26-27, 2010, at the Santa Ana Star Center in the Rio Rancho City Center.
Times are noon-9 p.m. March 26 and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. March 27. Parking is $10 per car, which includes admission.
The Pork & Brew is sponsored by the Rio Rancho Convention and Visitors Bureau, and is a fully sanctioned Kansas City BBQ Society event - one of the top 10 events on the Society calendar. With more than 30,000 in attendance last year, Pork & Brew has become one of the largest two-day events in New Mexico. Winners go on to participate in Kansas City, KS at the Nationals.
Yes, you can buy BBQ from the various vendors, BBQ Sauces, there are also other food vendors. They do have beer there, I don't know if you have to stay in a certain area, I don't know what their selections are.
