This weekend kicks off the second annual Carowinds Bands, Brews, and BBQ event. The festivities will be held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from July 29 – August 14, 2016. BBQ booths open at 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
If you have visited Carowinds in the past, you would know Executive Chef Kris Siuta is at the top of his game when it comes to barbecue! Take for example the smoked BBQ pork available at Harmony Hall, which has become a staple during our visits. So we are excited to see a return of the iconic food booths featuring specific Pork, Poultry, and Beef menus. In addition, just like last year, all meals will be served with Chow Chow, and everyone’s favorite, the banana pudding served in a souvenir mason jar will make its return.
Check back here with menu updates as they become available. Guests will be able to try everything from beef brisket to turkey wings to duck, and top it off with one of many variations of sauces ranging from sweet to tangy to mustard and downright vinegar.
Guests can sit down and fill their tummies while listening to some favorite tunes as local bands take center stage on the patio just outside of Harmony Hall.
“We’re so pleased to bring back Bands, Brews and BBQs for another year at the park,” says Kris Siuta, Carowinds Executive Chef. “We’ve brought together three favorites under one roof- food, brew and music. Mix that with world-class rides and attractions, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for fun.”
In addition, visitors can try their luck at Beer Pong and Beer Slides and take notes as representatives from Cabela’s show grillers how to smoke meat at home.
Admission to the Bands, Brew, & BBQ event is free with your park admission. To purchase beer or food for Bands, Brews and BBQs, guests will need to buy tokens from a token booth inside the park located near Harmony Hall.
Guests 21 and over will also be able to indulge in a beer selection from all over, including local brews from Windy Hill Brewery, Big Boss Brewery, Bold Rock Brewery and Quest Brewery. This would also be a great chance to sample Carobrew!
