Dillard Bluegrass
and Barbeque
Festival

KCBS Georgia State Championship

AUGUST 1st & 2nd 2014

2014 is our 18th Year !

 

 

The Dillard Bluegrass & Barbeque Festival started in 1997 and has grown to what it is today through the hard work, dedication, and efforts of many volunteers and BBQ enthusiasts from around the country.

Each year people come from across the nation to compete in this once a year event,  to listen to authentic Bluegrass music played by numerous bands from all over, and to savor the mouth watering smells and sights of smoking meats of all kinds. There is always lots to do and things to see for the whole family at this wonderful event. The cooking rigs are a sight to behold, and the vendors serving the many foods and delicacies are some of the best in the world.

Make plans to take your vacation in August this year and spend a few days in the north Georgia mountains. There is nothing like it anywhere in the USA. Your kids will love it and once you have been here you will make it a yearly tradition to come back like so many other people do.

We have free parking and free shuttles for both days, just follow the signs.
You will find this great event at 892 Franklin Street, Dillard!!
