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! This year we are excited to feature Terry Baucom’s Dukes of Drive as our headlining act. Also featured Drive Time Band.

Bring your dancing shoes! You can look forward to smoking bluegrass, 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 are encouraging people to stay because no one wants to miss the music, auctions and games!

Food will be served from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. and features John Brown’s BBQ. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, which includes barbecue pork, all the fixings, drink, dessert and entertainment. Advance purchase strongly recommended.
