Every 4th weekend in September, Comanche, Texas hosts the Pow Wow. It is a weekend of true Texan fun! Here is what you can expect to experience while at the festival!


The Pow Wow’s 38th Annual Barnie McBee BarBeque, is a Lone Star Bar-B Que Society sanctioned Cook Off. Over 40 Teams fire up their grills and compete for over $1500.00 in prize money and awards to see who has the best brisket, ribs, chicken, beans and Dutch oven desserts!  The Cookers will cook all night and into the next morning waiting on the judging to begin at 11:00 am with beans and continuing until 4:00 pm with the finale being the brisket.  The awards ceremony takes place after the last brisket has been judged.
