Bloomin’ BBQ and Bluegrass Festival-You Be the Judge!

Our favorite street festival is in full swing this weekend in Sevierville, May 17-18, with music, food, crafts, kid activities and more.

Choose the food! Wet sauce or dry rub? Sweet tomato or spicy mustard? Taste and decide your favorite from this award-winning competition. Over forty cook teams smoke their best efforts to win the barbecue title. Even judging among the team names is an amusing activity.

Choose the music! An impressive slate of bluegrass talent provides free live music variety on multiple stages throughout the venue. If you are new to bluegrass, it’s a great crash course in music culture. Back again is the Mountain Soul Vocal Competition, where contestants select a Dolly Parton song (over 3000 of them!) to sing in any style. Select your winners.

Choose to come again! If you miss it this year, make plans to attend in 2014: the 10-year anniversary celebration promises to be even bigger. Come relax with us in a Sevierville cabin rental at Volunteer Cabin Rentals, and soak it up at this delicious event in the Smokies. We’ll be there, and hope you will too.
