The Big Ass Cookout is one of those parties that’s becoming famous around town.

The Big Ass Cookout is one of those parties that’s becoming famous around town. While I never had the privilege of attending Slaughterama, Best Friend’s Day, or GWAR BBQ, I can say that The Big Ass Cookout is getting it’s name right up there… only geared more towards celebrating Richmond’s Hip-Hop and creative culture.

What started as just a few friends who wanted to throw a party to promote their crew has now transformed into an event that’s talked about year-round. Yes, The Field Mobb, made up of folks like the incredible artist Earl Mack, has not only grown #ABigAssCookout to being one of the most premiere showcases of the year, but one that takes it back home by bringing good people, good music, and good food together.

This Saturday’s marks their ‘end of the summer’ closeout, and is definitely an event you don’t want to sleep on. Don’t believe me? Check out this video from earlier this summer:

Still not convinced? Well, hell, even RVA rapper Nickelus-F thought the party was so good he had to release a song about it.

Tickets include a meal and drink ticket or a higher level ticket for unlimited drinks.

I mean, at this point…if you’re not convinced, I don’t know what to tell you. There’s going to be food, music, debauchery, good people, a slip-n-slide, great people, drinks… and just a boat load of celebratory end of summer fun.

“It started off as an idea by James “Rong” Williams in 2014 as way to offer people in Richmond a non club event for the holiday weekends,” said Bruce Fields, head organizer for the event. “The first Memorial Day cookout had roughly 40-50 people in attendance. Our last Memorial Day cookout had close to 1000 people. The city of Richmond has truly embraced our mission of just providing people with dope events in the city.”

Located at ‘The Field Mobb Estate’ (3800 Florida Ave Richmond VA 23222), the party will run from 2pm to 7pm and you can cop tickets here.

Trust me, there’s no other way you’d want to close out the season.
