Murrieta Fire & Rescue (MFR) is hosting its annual Firefighter’s Barbeque on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at Murrieta’s Town Square Park. In celebration of MFR’s 77th anniversary, this year’s event will be bigger than ever, with live music at Murrieta’s Town Square Park Amphitheater and various activities throughout the day. The Murrieta Firefighter’s Barbeque is one of Riverside County’s longest-running events, with the first barbeque held in 1948. As is the tradition, barbeque guests will enjoy a smoked tri-tip lunch, music, a beer and wine garden, a bag-toss tournament, and a vendors’ market. Attendees will also get to cheer on fire explorers from throughout Southern California in the annual Fire Explorers “Muster” Competition.


The day will be filled with fun, food, and entertainment, allowing the community to show their support for the dedicated public safety personnel serving at MFR. It is also a way for MFR to show appreciation for the community it has served for the past 77 years. In addition to the traditional barbeque fare, this year’s event will feature additional food options and general vendors, live music, and a DJ. Fun for all ages, this is an event the Murrieta community won’t want to miss. 

Attending the event is free and open to the public with a nominal fee for the barbeque lunch.  Lunch ticket prices and vendor applications will be announced soon.
