Backyard BBQ Bash


Join us for a day of food, fun, and music at the Museum of the Cape Fear's Backyard BBQ Bash!

The N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (DNCR) has created a new traveling exhibit that examines the history of barbecue and its continuing place in North Carolina culture. Come and see the exhibit and learn more about the history of barbecue in North Carolina. Author of "Holy Smoke: The Big Book of North Carolina Barbecue," John Shelton Reed will be giving a lecture at 10:30am exploring the history of the subject. 

Festivities will continue throughout the day at 1897 Poe House. Blugrass musician, Slippery Hill will be performing in the backyard and we will have food trucks onsite for the day.
