Wristbands will cost $10 and will allow festival-goers to sample bbq from both the local backyard division as well as from the experts. Live music starts at 6 p.m. and will run until about 10 p.m.

On Saturday morning, vendors and entertainment will be getting started at 9 a.m., and the winners of the competition will be announced at 5 p.m.

The Mt. Pleasant and Northeast Cabarrus fire departments will also offer their own bbq for sale as well.
