Under the water tower, in the heart of Greeley, this park's the perfect setting for the infamous, annual Greeley Smokeoff, the first Fri/Sat after Labor Day. The gathering place for the community is the Greeley City Park, located in the center of town and provides many amenities for family reunions, weddings, and special events. The town more than triples in size the first Friday and Saturday following Labor Day. Smoke and spice fills the air as barbecue teams for the four-state area converge in the Greeley City Park for the annual Greeley Smokeoff. While the competition is somewhat serious, the fun abounds as teams dress up, dress down, and otherwise fool around, all to support over 25 local charities. Place your freewill donation in the tip jar at each competitor's station and sample some of the best barbecue you will ever eat. Beef, pork and chicken, along with side dishes and desserts all created from the grill. The Greeley City Park is open all year around with playground, tennis courts, open shelters and more.
