Blaze-Off and Senior Q

At The Fountains at Greenbriar, we get all fired up every October for our Annual Blaze-Off and Senior Q! You’ll understand why when you attend it yourself on October 18 and 19. We’ve hosted this competition, sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society, ten years running in observance of Senior Q Month. Between the feel-good food and the hearty conversations, this event is always a delight.

Friday night features a dessert competition, happy hour and raffle prizes such as a large-screen TV or a quilt made by one of our residents. On Saturday, 40 teams turn in their prize meats starting at noon for judging by members of the KCBS. After the winners are announced, it’s on to the best part of this unique competition. We serve up all those savory meats with sides, desserts, and drinks from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

We can’t wait to see you for the next one. To register or for a complete schedule of The Fountains Blaze-Off and Senior Q, contact Tina Dietz at
