The Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce puts on what some say is the most popular barbecue festival in the U.S. And while that claim (like all things to do with 'cue) is sure to be hotly contested, the annual Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival (at Harmon Field in Tryon) certainly has something for pretty much everyone. Cook-offs, arts and crafts, vendors and music top the to-do list. This year's bands include local acts Big Daddy Love, Aaron Burdett Band, Town Mountain and Velvet Truckstop and frequent WNC visitors Donna the Buffalo. Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. daily. Free on Friday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Otherwise $8 adults/free for children under 12. http://www.blueridgebbqfestival.com.
