Salisbury BBQ Festival

First of all, I am not connected to this festival at all. According to our Salisbury Post, Salisbury is going to have it's first bbq festival on May 1. The public can purchase a sampler plate and more information at Anybody going?

  1. Sorry I didn't see your post until today (the day after the festival).

    I was planning to go, but I was grilling out for a college class earlier in the day. Since it poured the rain on me while grilling, my hair was a mess and dirt all over the back of my tan jeans. Figured I looked like a street person so headed on home.

    The article in the Salisbury Post today says that they only had a half dozen people eating barbecue at noon. I'd say the rain didn't help, but a festival on Friday when people are working is hard to pull off.

    Anyway, I thought I'd say "hi." I'm from near Salisbury. And, this is my first time here at ChowHound.

    Maybe the newspaper article link would be of interest as well:

      Hi, it's good to see another person from Salisbury on this board. Sorry you didn't get to the festival. From what i read in the paper, there was a wedding that was already booked on Sat. Hopefully if they do it next year, the people running it will be more organized.

        I hope so. It would be fun to have a barbecue festival here every year. I know the barbecue is good in this area. Hopefully they will try again.
