Grillin at the Gate

The Town of Gate City is home to the Annual Grillin at the Gate festival!!    The event will feature live music from rock to bluegrass, so there's a musical style for everyone to enjoy!  There may even be an Elvis sighting!  Little grillers will have the opportunity to enjoy Piglet's Corner which will be full of children's events to please the entire family. 

Now, let's talk about some good healthy competition!  BBQ vendors from around our region will battle it out for their chance to be "Best of" four categories: chicken, ribs, pork and sauce in order to win the coveted cleaver trophy!  Various food vendors will be set up as well, so if BBQ isn't your think, we've got you covered!  This year, Wild Game category has been added to the competition!

A Beer Garden will be designated with breweries from around the region in a specific location during the festival with drink limits and security.
