The 6th Annual ‘Cuegrass Festival returns to the Warehouse district in downtown Raleigh on Saturday April 26th 12-6pm. In past years a nice crowd has gathered along Davie street outside The Pit BBQ for the jam-packed day of great ‘cue, local brews and toe-tappin’ bluegrass music! It only costs $5 at the gate to enter (food & beer additional). Proceeds from the $5 gate donation Backpack Buddies & the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC.
This event is a great way to spend the afternoon outside enjoying great music. Make sure you bring a chair and get there early to grab a good spot as it does get crowded. I also highly recommend a hat and suncreen as there is limited shade. Musical acts planned for this year’s event are Old Habits, The Barefoot Movement, Acoustic Manner, Grits & Soul, and The 23 String Band
The Pit will have the pig cookers fired up to serve plenty of their famous Eastern North Carolina-style barbecue and offer a selection of local brews. This year’s event will feature Aviator, Big Boss, Carolina Brewery, Lonerider, Triangle and White Street. This is one of my favorite spring events in downtown Raleigh. Definitely worth checking out. Enjoy!
