The 9th annual Venice BBQ & Community Potluck Picnic returns to Oakwood Park on Saturday, August 8.
Local fire station #63's retired chief Jeremiah Johnson and master grillers Todd von Hoffmann and Michael Watkins, will be manning the flames and grilling burgers, hot dogs, chicken and pulled pork. Bring a side dish, salad or dessert to share.
The free event, hosted by the Venice Neighborhood Council, will also feature live music, games and activities for all ages, as well as guest visits from city, state and federal elected officials.
“The BBQ is our biggest event of the year," says VNC President Mike Newhouse. "It is an opportunity to meet old friends, make new friends and celebrate Venice, this special place we all call home."
