Bring your family and a big appetite to BBQ Boogie & Blues in Downtown Calhoun. The event, presented by Mohawk, features a Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned competition. 

On Friday evening, the smell of BBQ will fill the air as contestants start cooking. Take a stroll, enjoy the aroma, see the teams in action, and visit the food and arts and crafts vendors. Head to Court Street for live music by Kurt Thomas or relax to the sounds of bluegrass at the Harris Arts Center's annual Georgia String Band Festival. 

Saturday boasts a full day of festivities, including a bicycle ride to benefit the Alzheimer's Association, live music with Live Exchange Band, arts and crafts vendors, kids zone, and of course, food! Be sure to taste and vote for your favorite BBQ in the People's Choice contest. The string band festival continues at the Harris Arts Center.
