Pork, Pickles & Peanuts:  Tastes of NC
Sunday, July 13th, 2013
10:00am – 4:00pm
Free


Each year we celebrate North Carolina food culture and history with our Pork, Pickles and Peanuts: Tastes of NC Festival. This extremely tasty event includes a BBQ and Pie contest. New this year, guests can taste the BBQ and pick a People’s Choice winner of their own.

Down at the Historic Home of the Duke family food continues to be the theme with historic cooking demonstrations. Beyond the kitchen, you can visit the rest of the Duke family’s 1852 home and outside enjoy 19th century games and toys.

Food definitely is the focus of the day, but make sure you don’t leave without visiting our many talented local arts and crafts vendors. Pork, Pickles and Peanuts allows you to fill your stomach and support North Carolina artists at the same time!
The Malpass Brothers will be playing two sets live on stage during the festival, in the morning from 11 am – 12 pm and in the afternoon from 1 pm – 2 pm.
Don’t forget to check out or even participate in our 1940′s mock Tobacco Queen Pageant! Tobacco Queens are a Harvest Festival tradition and each year our Tobacco Queen, picked at this event, debuts at our fall Harvest and Hornworm Festival.

Please confirm all events with the venue before attending.
