  • Smoke on the Water is an annual barbecue competition and fundraising event organized and managed by the Washington Noon Rotary.
  • The Rotary distributes all of the net proceeds from the event to local charities.
  • Barbecue chefs cook overnight and their barbecue is judged early Saturday morning.
  • The barbecue from all the competitors is then chopped and sold to individuals on Saturday. Entertainment and exhibits are spread throughout the Washington waterfront and downtown area, creating a destination atmosphere whether families are barbecue fans or not.
  • Sound Rivers is pleased to be a part of Smoke on the Water again this year, and provide on-the-water excitement to help bring more people to Washington and help the Noon Rotary raise even more money for local charities.
