Community Feedback Needed for 2022 Summer Events

The Town of Frisco is seeking feedback and advice about the Frisco BBQ Challenge, held in June, and the Frisco 4th of July celebrations. The Town paused the BBQ Challenge and most of the 4th of July celebrations in 2020 and 2021 to support public health efforts and used that time to gather feedback from residents, businesses, and visitors in order to thoughtfully consider the future of both events. We heard a lot about making these events smaller and more community-oriented, and organized the 2022 events with this feedback in mind. 

The BBQ Challenge returned in 2022, and was renamed the Frisco BBQ Challenge, rather the Colorado BBQ Challenge, to reflect a more intimate community feel. The 2022 event included fewer ancillary events and refocused on BBQ (rather than carnival type food), music, and a place for friends and family to gather.

Frisco’s 4th of July celebrations returned with the traditional pancake breakfast, fishing derby, human-powered parade, and a concert in the Frisco Historic Park. The planned fireworks display could not proceed because the Town’s permit to shoot fireworks over Dillon Reservoir was denied.

The Town of Frisco is once again seeking input regarding these events and potential changes to best serve the Frisco community.  We appreciate your time and thoughtful advice.  

This survey will remain open until 5:00pm on Friday, September 16, 2022.
