16TH ANNUAL BLOOMIN’ BBQ & BLUEGRASS is scheduled for May 14, 2021 thru May 15, 2021.
Bloomin’ BBQ & Bluegrass is a Tennessee State Championship Barbeque Competition that is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society and draws the top cook teams and 65+ judges from all across the United States. In addition to barbeque, this event also showcases artists and crafters demonstrating their skills and selling their wares. Kids can play in the “Kids’ Zone” on both Friday and Saturday while parents browse around the event. Finally, every hometown festival should honor its hometown girl, right? Returning in 2021 is the “Mountain Soul Vocal Competition” in which vocalists must perform their best rendition of a Dolly Parton song! Live music will also be going on for quests to fest on their BBQ while enjoying free concerts! Entertainers including Trinity River Band, Jimbo Whaley & Greenbrier, Mountain Ruckus, Shenandoah, and more! Come out for this FREE community event!
