Bluegrass & Barbeque
Saturday August 16, 2014

Enjoy a day of music, food and fun at Bluegrass and Barbeque!

Starting at park open, guests can enjoy bluegrass entertainers throughout the park all day. 

In partnership with C-93 of Valdosta, guests can also enjoy a bluegrass and classic country competition at Lakeside Showplace and the main stage at the all-star amphitheater. 

And what goes better with bluegrass music than barbeque? Wild Adventures' own slow-smoked and perfectly seasoned pork and chicken will be available along with other local food vendors featuring even more barbeque as well as sausage, coffee, sweets and treats. Some vendors will be offering free samples.
