Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival Friday, Saturday

Blue Ridge BBQ Festival 2016

The Blue Ridge BBQ Festival starts Friday June 10 at Harmon Field in Tryon.

It lasts until Saturday at 11 p.m.

Several folks from WSPA will be there so come by and say hi!


  • $8 adults
  • Kids 12 and under get in free with paying adult.
  • Active duty military men and women are FREE with military ID.
  • Polk Co. and Landrum residents get in free on FRIDAY (need ID that shows home address)

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

“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. “We started ‘FREE on FRIDAY from 10 am to 2 pm’ three years ago for the general public, and we are still going to do that this year. But if you live in Polk County or Landrum, you get in free until we close Friday,” he said.

Both days will feature music on two stages, Carnival rides and games, an exceptional juried Craft Fair, and some of the best BBQ to be had anywhere-plus a wide variety of other foods and beverages.

Saturday there will also be the 5th annual Classic Car Show, with approximately 200 beautifully restored cars and trucks; a “HOG Run to Fun” motorcycle poker run beginning at Harley Davidson in Greenville and ending at the Festival; and, at the end of the day, the Grand Finale Fireworks show by Zambelli Fireworks.

In an effort to be “family friendly,” vendors this year will be offering smaller, less expensive portions as well as their regular menu items, and there will be many choices besides BBQ.

Kids’ Ride Bracelets will be available again this year-that is, unlimited rides for just $15 in two sessions each day: from the time the gates open until 4pm and from 4pm until 10pm.
