Where can you enjoy authentic North Carolina BBQ with all the fixins’, hear a five-member bluegrass band, and peruse the wares of local artisans? Come to the North Carolina Genealogical Society’s Pig Pickin’ BBQ and Bluegrass Event.

Big Al’s BBQ and Catering will serve up delicious pork, fish, and chicken with fried okra, coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, hush puppies, rolls, and cornbread. And save room for Banana Pudding and Apple Cobbler. Are you a vegetarian? No problem. Let us know when you register and a vegetarian entree will be made just for you.

An award-winning bluegrass band from the Raleigh area—The Grass Cats—will bring lively fiddle and banjo music, bluegrass classics, tight vocal harmonies and a cappella-style gospel quartets to our event. Their “top of the chart” original music and down-home humor promises a foot-stomping good time.

And there’s more! Come and browse the wares of local North Carolina artisans. Tentatively planned are a goat’s milk soap maker, wooden bowl turner, painter, glass blower, metal worker, tinsmith, potter, honey-and-beeswax candlemaker, and more. Purchase a piece of North Carolina to take home with you!

Call it a shindig, a wingding, or a pig pickin’—it’s good friends, good music, and good eating—Southern style!

Tickets are $45 each and bus transportation from the Convention Center is included. Parking at the fairgrounds is free.
