A barbecue festival featuring local and national pitmasters will be coming to downtown St. Louis this fall.

According to the St. Louis Business Journal, Downtown STL Inc. and Eximus Productions are putting the festival together and it will run from Sept. 21 through Sept. 27 at Soldiers’ Memorial. The announcement comes after the city center has lost a few festivals to the suburbs, but really a festival featuring barbecue seems like a no brainer. St. Louis is known as the home of some of the best barbecue in the country.

The festival will feature local favorites such as Pappy’s Smokehouse, as well as nationally ranked pitmasters such as The Salt Lick Bar-B-Que and Peg Leg Porker, the journal said.

The event intentionally coincides with a St. Louis Rams home game, as well as the St. Louis Cardinal’s final home stand of the regular season.
