Bring your lawn chair and an empty stomach and spend the day listening to sweet sounds of the Bluegrass while enjoying delicious food from local vendors. Amateur pitmasters can participate in the backyard barbecue contest, new this year.
The Red, White & Bluegrass Festival draws a crowd of 2,000 to 3,000 people each year.
Entry fee for the contest is $50. A $500 grand prize will be given to the best amateur pitmaster. There also will be a People's Choice winner selected, but no cash prize will be given for that category. Deadline to enter the contest is June 22.
