BBQ, Blues, and Brews

BBQ, Blues, and Brews

This is a fundraising event for the nonprofit Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association and features things people love about North Carolina: BBQ, Blues, and Craft Beer! Guests are encouraged to sample delicious BBQ, savor a unique selection of locally brewed beer and enjoy live music. Join the fun at the old Stephens Hardware Building- 405 East Broad Street.

Tasting Tickets are available for purchase the day of event, ticket price to be determined based on number of teams participating. The BBQ always sells out, so come early if you want to sample the best BBQ around! Due to the crowds and loud music, this is not an event that pets will enjoy. Please leave them in the comfort of home.
