It's that time of year again! We are getting ready for our annual BBQ Cook-Off. This whole hog backyard competition brings together the best pig cookers in our area so they can put their skills to the test.

We will have family friendly activities and entertainment on-site on Saturday as well as some delicious BBQ. Make plans to come out to eat BBQ and enjoy a fall day on our 5-acre grounds of historic buildings. Vendors and demonstrators will be on site with various traditional arts and crafts. Activities include pony rides, performances by local musicians and dancers, blacksmithing demonstrations, and more.

Event Sponsors include Fords Gourmet Food, Bone Suckin Sauce and Lowell Mill Market and Grill and our #SteppingintothePast sponsors: JoCo Arts Council, NC Arts Council, Farm Bureau of Johnston County, Phillip Morris USA, NC Electric Cooperatives, NC Farm Credits and Manheim North Carolina.

There is still time to sign up to compete. For more information visit:
