Sevierville TN Event of the Year
Ridgecrest Log Cabins and Chalets love it when things are “double.” And we have a great “double” to tell you about happening May 15-16, 2015 in Sevierville TN: BBQ and Bluegrass. It’s time for the Annual Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass Festival!
Who doesn’t enjoy filling their stomach with tasty BBQ and their ears with down-home bluegrass music? It’s so good, the Southeast Tourism Society has named the Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass Festival the Event of the Year! Last year over 26,000 people showed up, so you certainly don’t what to be one to miss out. We currently have four cabins available for these dates and are ready to help you make your reservations so that you can enjoy an entire weekend of entertainment!
This 2-day party is free, fun and family oriented. The Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass Festival is sanctioned as an official TN State Championship Competition, which means BBQ is serious business to these competitive teams from across the US. This year offers attendees an opportunity to participate in voting for “People’s Choice” with a $10 taste-testing ticket.
What is BBQ without world-class bluegrass music? This year’s musical highlights include the addition of Sound Biscuit Productions Stage and headliner Steep Canyon Rangers. Additional bluegrass performers and groups include Dixieghost, Flatt Lonesome, Sierra Hull, and Jimbo Whaley among others. And in case you want more than just bluegrass, the extremely popular Hard Rock Café Community Stage will be providing a variety of music including rock, country, and a mix of the two.
There’s more to this festival than just BBQ and Bluegrass. It’s bloomin’ with booths filled with authentic mountain crafts, a Kid’s Zone with old-fashioned games, a trampoline ‘park,’ and bounce houses, grilling tips from grillmasters, and the popular Mountain Soul vocal competition.
