Currituck Heritage Festival Bulls & BBQ Edition

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Time:  11:00am until…

Currituck County Rural Center (CCRC), 184 Milburn Sawyer Road, Powells Point, NC

We are so excited to share this wonderful event!  Get ready for a fun-filled day for the entire family as we are partnering with the Currituck County NC Cooperative Extension Center, Kansas City Barbeque Society, and Professional Bull Riding for a day of good food, family activities, and excitement!

Currituck Heritage Festival Bulls & BBQ Edition will be a fun-filled day with activities for adults and children… bounce house, bungie, rock wall, and children’s games.  There will also be live music featuring the Mikele Buck Band, antique tractors, vendors selling unique wares and food vendors selling food.  There may be some activities that will require a small fee, however most of the activities are free.

Come out and experience the smells and excitement of a sanctioned KCBS Cook-Off.  Unfortunately, the competition BBQ is for judging only,  so tastes of the competition barbeque aren’t allowed.  However, there will be plenty of local fare and good food vendors selling food on site.

We also hope you will plan to stay for the Rodeo that evening! Gates open for the Rodeo at 7:00pm/Show begins at 7:30pm.

Admission to the Rodeo:

  • Adult Admission: $20
  • Children: 6-12 : $15
  • Children 5 & Under:  Free
