Besides featuring the annual Saturday morning parade and evening fireworks extravaganza, Waterbury’s Not-Quite Independence Day (NQID) celebration includes a BBQ Festival over Saturday and Sunday with authentic barbecue, food trucks, craft brews and live music. More than 5,000 BBQ enthusiasts will come to watch 35+ pit masters from across the region compete in the Green Mountain BBQ Championship – sanctioned as a Vermont state BBQ championship by both the Kansas City Barbeque Society and New England Barbecue Society. This event supports Rotary Club of Waterbury, a local civic nonprofit association.
