Volunteers are the heart of Blue Ridge BBQ Festival


Want to get in FREE both days? Just volunteer for one 4-hour shift, and you’ve got it!

Come be a part of this year’s great event, June 13 and 14 at Harmon Field in Tryon.

The Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival is where the music is great, the barbecue is the best, the rides are fun, and the arts and crafts are beautiful. But it’s the volunteers who make it all come together.

And it’s that time again!  …Time for volunteers to start signing up and getting involved. The festival needs between 300 and 500 community volunteers to make it happen, ages 14 to whatever.  This is a community festival, and community volunteers—whether long-timers or first-timers, individuals, families or groups—make it happen.

In addition to getting the highly coveted “VOLUNTEER” tee shirt, volunteers will get free admission both days, convenient parking and a BBQ Bucks to spend on a meal. PLUS the fun of knowing they’re part of the coolest thing happening.

Volunteering is easy and there are lots of FUN positions to sign up for. Go to to download an application form OR, call write or stop by the Festival Office at the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce for an application (2753 Lynn Road, Tryon, NC, 28782 – 828-859-7427).
