Thank you for visiting our link to what used to be an annual event here in Tryon. Unfortunately, the BBQ Festival is no longer. It was a great event for many years, but times do change. Tryon has many other festivals worth attending. Please visit First Peak of the Blue Ridge for more information. It is that time of year again for the nationally famous Blue Ridge BBQ Festival held right here in Tryon, NC, at Harmon Field. The dates this year, rain or shine, are June 10 and June 11. Come one, come all for some pig pickin’ fun! There will be vendor booths for you to pick up a souvenir or two or in case you want to bump up your Christmas in July shopping–to June! If live music is your “thing,” there will be plenty of it both days. The food will be great, of course, pork, chicken, corn on the cob and all the fixins’. You are sure to run into some folks you know and maybe even some you want know! If Classic Car Shows are your “bag,” you will not want to miss this one. Be sure to check out the website for all of the particulars, including directions, hours, admission prices etc. Y’all come on down, now, ‘ya hear?! You will not want to miss it this year!
