The Barnesville Lamar County Chamber of Commerce hosts the Annual BBQ and Blues Festival in downtown Barnesville, GA on the fourth weekend in April. The event is sanctioned by the Florida BBQ Association and hosts some of the nation’s best blues acts. BBQ & Blues spices up the atmosphere downtown each year. Whether you are dancing with the neighbors down the street or winning best in show at the classic car cruise-in, you are going to have a great time.
On Friday night you will enjoy the sound of good music, classic cars on display, delicious food, and a kid’s park! On Saturday taste 24 cook team’s brisket and relax under the shade trees to good music while the kids play. Saturday evening is where the weekend ends with great bands, a GA Music Legend is honored and a musically inclined high school student is given a college scholarship. You never know what special music guest may show up!
BBQ & Blues is loaded with good family fun, southern hospitality, and all in the downtown of a charming city.
