Annual Blue Ridge Barbeque and Music Festival this Weekend in Tryon

June 12 - 13, 2015   Annual Blue Ridge Barbeque and Music Festival   The Blue Ridge Barbecue Festival is one of the area's biggest annual events with fantastic Barbecue, phenomenal music and incredible arts and crafts. 

Enjoy the classic car show or the Boss Hawg Run to  Fun.  Bring the kids, friends, family and more. No pets, no coolers are allowed. The festival is held at Harmon Field in Tryon NC and hosted by by the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce with all proceeds benefitting the Chamber’s operating budget and funding the Carolina Foothills Chamber Foundation.

The Foothills Crafts Fair is a juried crafts show held in conjunction with the Blue Ridge Barbeque and music Festival. Located on either side of a wide paved avenue and along the Pacolet River, there are usually soft breezes to cool the June temperatures down a bit and provide shoppers a more comfortable environment.  Craft lovers can find objects made from wood, paper, fiber, fabric, leather, metal, gems, glass, stone, clay and other natural materials.
