BBQ Championship Coming to Water Street!


Dear Business Owner,

My name is Mark Gorodetzer, and I am the Executive Director of Smoke on Water BBQ Championship and a member of the Water Street Business District Association. The First Smoke on Water BBQ Championship©  contest will take place on October 5 – 6, 2018 at the Events Plaza on Water Street in Henderson, NV. The event will attract 30-50 competition BBQ teams from across the U.S. and an estimate of more than 5,000 people for the People’s Choice tasting on Saturday, October 6, 2018. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the 22 Warriors Foundation.

Smoke on Water is excited to be offering a special promotion exclusively for Water Street, Water Street District businesses and members of WSDBA to promote your products and services.

For $250, your business will be promoted as co-sponsors for the 2nd Tuesday of the Month, 22 Warriors Foundation Vets & Local Business Mixer at the Las Vegas Distillery, from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. This event promotes a different BBQ catering vendor each month who provides dinner (which is included in the $10 admission price). Proceeds of these events benefit the 22 Warriors Foundation. If you’ve not attended this event, we encourage you to join us see how excited we are about BBQ in Las Vegas. We’ll also help you answer any questions you may have.

The 2nd Tuesday/22 Warriors event is publicized primarily through social media; Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and posted to the WSDBA and Henderson Chamber of Commerce calendars and sent to the City of Henderson. Through these resources, we anticipate a reach of more than 100,000 people over the next nine months leading up to the competition.

Each business who partners with us as a co-sponsor will receive 7 -10 months of social media and print advertising (dependent on how soon you reserve your sponsorship)..

The Smoke on Water BBQ Championship also has sponsorships available for the weekend of the event. These event sponsorships range from $1,000 to $10,000. If your business participates in the $250 co-sponsorship, this amount can be applied toward any of the weekend sponsorships (i.e., be a weekend sponsor for $1,000, the $250 will be applied, with a balance of $750 balance).
