In Event Coverage, News by Mark MaskerLeave a Comment

Bluegrass music fans coming to Raleigh for the International Bluegrass Music Association’s annual World of Bluegrass week in September will also have a chance to chow down at the N.C. Whole Hog Barbecue State Championship in the capital city’s downtown.
The North Carolina Pork Council, the sanctioning body for the annual N.C. Whole Hog Series of cooking contests held around the state leading to the championship event, announced the link with the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) event. This partnership links the cook-off with a monster bluegrass festival that is expected to draw tens of thousands to downtown Raleigh.
