Charlotte’s annual barbecue festival has a new name and location.
The Q-City Charlotte BBQ Championship returns to Center City on Oct. 18-19 with barbecue teams and demonstrations, craft beers and blues music acts. The 11th annual festival is a nod to what organizers call Charlotte’s barbecue culture and the largest Memphis Barbecue Network sanctioned competition in the Southeast.
Admission is free.
Vintage Trouble, which will headline the BBQ championship on Saturday, blends soul, blues and rock & roll. The New Orleans-based band The Soul Rebels will headline the Friday night show. Other performers will include Tinsley Ellis and Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights, with more acts to be announced.
Registration for BBQ teams opens on Aug, 16 at 10:18 a.m. For more information on how to register, go online at charlottebbqfestival.com or email Damon Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
