Saturday & Sunday, May 4 – 5, 2024

We love a good party, and the Springfest weekend gives us the opportunity to celebrate the return of warmer weather together!  Springfest weekend has changed over the years and now includes a backyard burger competition, a car show, and activities associated with the Red Carpet Corridor.

Route 66 Backyard Burger Competition
(aka The D-Town Throwdown)

For the past several years, the KCBS “pros” have had all the fun.  Now it’s YOUR turn again.

Form your team.  Determine your cross-town rivals.  And bring it to the D-Town Throwdown.

Individuals, friend groups, families, and businesses are all encouraged to participate, to taunt your rivals to participate, to make the loser do something ridiculous, and to record it for all of us to enjoy.

Register online, or download the Entry Form and Rules.
