Pro Registration


The Riverfest Barbecue Competition is open to everyone, professionals and amateurs. There is no limit to the number of cooks on a team. Contestants who are not members of the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) must pay a $25.00 KCBS competition fee. To avoid this fee, all you have to prove is that one of your head cooks is a KCBS member in good standing by providing their KCBS member number. For more information on becoming a KCBS member, visit
