Janet’s Blog

Welcome to the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce Blog!  I am Janet Sciacca, Executive Director of the Chamber.   I guarantee this will be a short post, so you can read it quickly and pass it along!  The 23rd Annual Blue Ridge BBQ Festival is a month away,  June 10th and 11th, 2016, and there are some new things I want to tell you about for this years festival.  If you have been before, you know there is great food and music.  New this year is FREE ADMISSION all day Friday for Polk County and Landrum SC residents!  There is still free admission for EVERYONE FROM 10:00  TO 2:00 ON FRIDAY.   We still have free parking, and shuttles to the festival grounds.  The Riverside Stage will look different this year with the stage and seating all under a huge tent.  We have a new Kids Amusements vendor, so there will be all new rides this year, with the same One Price-6 hour-Wristband of $15 for the kids to enjoy rides over and over.  There is a lot to do at the festival, so check out the website at www.blueridgebbqfestival.com for everything you need to know!
