'Cuegrass Festival
Barbecue, beer and bluegrass return to Raleigh’s warehouse district at The Pit Authentic Barbecue’s 9th annual ‘Cuegrass Festival. The pig cookers will be fired up early outside The Pit on Davie Street, which will be blocked off to cook and serve plenty of the The Pit’s famous barbecue. We’ll also serve a selection of local and regional beers, including beers from Appalachian Mountain Brewery, Big Boss, Bold Rock, Lonerider and White Street Brewing. ‘Cuegrass will again honor its musical roots with some of the area’s best bluegrass bands. On the stage, we’ll have musical guests Christine and the Strays, The Moore Brothers Band, The Malpass Brothers, Time Sawyer and Old Habits. All profits from the $5 gate donation (kids 10 and under are free!) at ‘Cuegrass will go to help improve the lives of kids in need in Wake County with proceeds going to SAFEchild, Wake County’s only child-abuse prevention agency, the Junior League of Raleigh’s BackPack Buddies program, which serves healthy weekend meals and snacks to children at Lacy, Hunter and Root elementary schools, and Cub Scout Troop 325. This year, we’re joining the fight against ALS by donating a portion of proceeds to Team Chris Combs.
