Disclosure: I’m a Carowinds Brand Ambassador (Caro Blogger) and received complimentary season passes to give you an all access experience to Carowinds. All opinions are 100% honest and completely my own.
If you love music, a good brew and some good oleâ€™ southern BBQ then youâ€™ll want to be at Carowinds for their second annual Bands, Brews & BBQs event. The food and beer festival event starts on Friday July 29th and will be held every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until August 14th from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Attendees must be 21 and to purchase or consume alcoholic beverages.
Added Bonuses: Visitors can try their luck at Beer Pong and Beer Slides and take notes as representatives from Cabelaâ€™s show grillers how to smoke meat at home. 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. *Referenced from Carowinds PR
Your park admission will allow you to enjoy the Bands, Brews & BBQs event however you will need to purchase tokens from a booth inside the park located near Harmony Hall. You will love the variety of available smoked meats to choose from that will be paired with Chow Chow. You can get a taste of beef brisket, turkey wings or duck. You also have some sweet and tangy sauces to add a kick!
I think dessert is my FAVORITE! You get to have some good oleâ€™ homemade banana pudding! Can you say YUM!!!!! You can relax on the patio right outside Harmony Hall and enjoy some local bands play tunes. If this isnâ€™t one of the most perfect summer experiences to have then I donâ€™t know what is. Donâ€™t forget you can also enjoy everything else Carowinds has going on inside the park.
From the Executive Chefâ€¦ â€œWeâ€™re so pleased to bring back Bands, Brews and BBQs for another year at the park,â€ says Kris Suita, Carowinds executive chef. â€œWeâ€™ve brought together three favorites under one roof- food, brew and music. Mix that with world-class rides and attractions, and youâ€™ve got the perfect recipe for fun.â€
