The Annual Chillin and Grillin Festival is hosted by the Sand Springs Chamber of Commerce. 

The two-day event features free admission to music, games, and craft booths, with Taster Kits available for as little as $10 to sample all the contestants' award-winning concoctions. The event is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society

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.
