On Saturday, May 17, the aroma of smoking meats and burgoo will fill the air around Pitt Academy announcing the 30th Annual Bar-B-Q Pitt Festival. With awesome food, outstanding music, children’s area and game booths there will be something for everyone who enjoys great food and fun!

The barbecue artisans from Ole Hickory Pit will slowly cook the finest meats over their natural wood pits … smoldering them to perfection the old-fashioned way. Pork, mutton, and chicken will be served, along with delicious Burgoo and from scratch side dishes of potato salad, coleslaw and barbeque beans! Bulk orders will be available too! Festival hours are 4:00 – 11:00 pm.
