Monadnock Up In Smoke is a three day barbecue, music and beer festival hosts performances from local rock and country bands. The festival began in the spring of 2013 and is held annually at the Cheshire Fairgrounds in Swanzey. The festival features a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned barbeque competition with teams from around New England and beyond, a car show, demonstrations, activities for children, fireworks - and plenty of music. Throughout the entire three days you will be able to interact with our championship BBQ teams, taste world class BBQ, listen to live music and shop from quality vendors in our flea market. There is a craft beer festival where you can taste beer from regional brewers and talk with the folks behind the magic. You be the judge in our "People Choice" BBQ tasting. Taste and vote for your favorite from our competing teams. Yourvote counts and they take home the prize!
Parking is free and admission is priced to be family friendly. Proceeds will help support Joy's Network Cancer Resources and other local community organizations. The 2014 date for the Monadnock Up In Smoke festival is May 30 - June 1.
