BBQ for Books with a Side of Bluegrass

Stokes Partnership for Children is pleased to present BBQ for Books with a Side of Bluegrass. Since bluegrass music is woven into the very fabric of Stokes County’s rich heritage and our event raises funds for early literacy initiatives for the county’s young children, including Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, it only made sense to add a side of bluegrass!  Four bands will be featured this year. We are excited to have None of the Above, Mason Via and Hot Trail Mix, the Brothers Band and the Traveling Danburys in the musical line-up. Bring your dancing shoes! You can look forward to good food and great entertainment, including our “World Famous” Silent Auction, Dessert Silent Auction, Heads and Tails Game, Slop Bucket Bidding and Pig Pen Raffle.  Due to high demand, we will have our popular take-out option again this year. Now folks can choose to dine-in with us or take their food to go. However, we’re encouraging people to stay because they don’t want to miss out on the music, auctions and games! Food will be served from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. and features John Brown’s BBQ - barbecue pork, fried chicken, two slaws, beans, drink and dessert and all the entertainment. Follow us on Facebookas information is updated and added and to see some of the available auction items.
