Smokin' on Broadway: a community celebration

Now in its fourth year, Smokin' on Broadway is a community-oriented and community-supported festival, featuring a BBQ contest, art, free concerts, and all sorts of activities for a day-long event. It's fun, it's goofy, it's for all ages, and it is very much Imperial. Whether you're a professional or amateur BBQ competitor, all are welcome to join our BBQ contest. Hangry for BBQ? Us too! You'll love the amazing food our competitors produce, and the variety of food and beverages for purchase from our vendors. Do you enjoy live music? We have a diverse lineup of regional musicians that will offer something for everyone to love. Do you love art? So do we! Imperial's first public mural (the really awesome one at the top of this page) was painted during the inaugural Smokin' on Broadway and in 2017 we featured a live painting contest for youth. Want to get weird? Come play human foosball, massive Scrabble and Jenga games. These are only a few of the fun activities we have done in previous years. We have a few more tricks up our sleeve this year. We guarantee there will be something for everyone.
