2018 BBQ AND BLUES FESTIVAL

Our first annual BBQ & Blues Festival was a huge hit so it's back bigger and better for 2018. We're very excited to announce that we'll be partnering up with local BBQ favorite, and nationally ranked BBQ competitor, Uncle Kenny's BBQ for this years festival. Our goal is to make BBQ & Blues the premier BBQ Festival in the South, and with Uncle Kenny's on board we know we've got the team to do it. We're still working on the details but you can be sure we will include the things you've asked for like rib samplers, faster service, and People's Choice voting.

As always the festival will also feature LIVE music on our outdoor stage, and solo acts inside at our Our Wine & Cheese Bar. Our popular Arts & Craft Village will be full of local vendors set up and offering a wide variety of art and hand crafted items. In addition to some great BBQ our Food Court will be open with a variety of additional food choices sure to satisfy your appetite. In addition your favorite Lakeridge wines, cold beer, ice cream, and a variety of other tasty treats will be available for purchase.
