The Seventh Annual Chillin and Grillin Festival was hosted by the Sand Springs Chamber of Commerce April 12-14, 2018 at Case Community Park.

The three-day event featured free admission to music, games, and craft booths. For only $10 patrons got to sample limitless barbecue and vote for their favorite team. Carnival rides and games were also on hand for the first year. 

Chillin and Grillin began in 2011 and was originally held on the second weekend in October. In 2016 it was moved to the second weekend in April. River City Park hosted the event through 2016 but was closed in 2017 for a major park renovation. The Chamber moved the event to Pogue Airport and partnered with the Harper's Hut Classic Car Show that year. 

In 2018 the event returned to the newly renovated and renamed Case Community Park (formerly River City) and expanded to three days for the first time. The Harper's Hut Car Show returned and carnival rides were added for the first time. The event was formerly sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, but was strictly Peoples' Choice in 2018.
