Food and music lovers will be in a southern culinary paradise at this event that has a focus on great tastes across the board. Wine & Swine BBQ Cook-off on BBQ Road on BBQ Road is a fun annual event that features plenty of music, food, drinks, and more, and which pays homage to Ocean Isle Beach’s inherent love of good BBQ.

The event takes place over the course of two days, and starts on Friday night with a friendly wing competition and a cash bar with wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages. (Admission to Friday’s event is free.) The fun continues on Saturday with the main event – the BBQ Cook-off – and for the cost of admission, attendees can sample a variety of BBQs that are in the running for best dish. The tasting will be held from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., and along the way, there will be plenty of music and shopping, courtesy of local arts and craft vendors. The public is encouraged to vote for their favorite, and judging will be held at 6 p.m. with an awards ceremony following soon after. Delicious fun throughout, the annual Wine & Swine BBQ Cook-off on BBQ Road is a great way to celebrate North Carolina’s love of southern cooking.
