Pickin’ two ways: barbecue and bluegrass at this Saturday’s ‘Cuegrass 2014

The Pit’s barbecue and bluegrass music will join together at this year’s ‘Cuegrass 2014 festival on Saturday, April 26 in downtown Raleigh.

The festival celebrates bluegrass with live performances by several bluegrass bands including Old Habits and The Barefoot Movement (complete line-up is here). In past years, festival-goers have brought comfortable chairs and their canine companions for the afternoon of pickin’.

‘Cuegrass 2014 starts at noon on Davie Street in front of The Pit and will last until 6 p.m. It’ll cost $5 to get past the gates (proceeds will go to several charities). Kids are free to get into the festival.

And, if you get hungry or thirsty at ‘Cuegrass, there will be a pig pickin’ feast and plenty of beer. The Pit will serve its famous Eastern-style North Carolina barbecue all day. A selection of beer from local breweries will be on tap as well. Food and beer will cost $5 each.

Revelers from 'Cuegrass can also head out over to Brewgaloo, a beer and food truck festival taking place the same day in downtown Raleigh’s City Plaza.
