August 1st and 2nd 2014... 18th Year Tradition!
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.
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.
