The first Laveen barbecue took place in 1952 as a fundraising event to fight against polio, organized by a group of rancher’s wives. The barbecue took place at the Laveen School, at the southwest corner of Dobbins Road and 51st Avenue, now the home to the Laveen Education Center. Over the years, the barbecue took place at the same location until more recently when it was at Betty Fairfax High School for a time, then at Corona Ranch. In 2018, Laveen BBQ Festival moved to Cesar Chavez Park, 7858 S 35th Ave, Laveen, AZ 85339.
