Blue Ridge BBQ Festival: Polk Co. & Landrum residents get in free

The Steering Committee of the Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival announced that admission to the 2016 Festival will be free all day Friday for all Polk County and Landrum residents.

All you have to do is bring an ID that shows your home address.

“It’s time to recognize the countless ways the local people have contributed to the success of the Festival over the years,” said Chairman Eric McKaig.

Like they’ve been doing for the past few years, they’re still going to allow the festival to be free for everyone on Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

However, if you are from Polk County or Landrum, you will get in free until closing time on Friday.

All other times, admission will be $8 for adults, and kids 12 and under get in free with a paying adult.

Active duty military men and women will also get in free by showing their military ID.

The festival will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, June 10 and 11, at Harmon Field in Tryon.

Admission includes parking, shuttle to the gate, and all of the concerts.

Not only will there be concerts, but there will be carnival rides and games, and, of course, some delicious BBQ.

On Saturday, there will also be the 5th annual Classic Car Show, the “HOG Run to Fun” motorcycle poker run, and a Grand Finale Fireworks show at the end of the night.

Kids’ Ride bracelets will be available again this year, which means unlimited rides for only $15 in two sessions each day.

Those two sessions will be from the time the gates open until 4:00 p.m., and then from 4:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.
