Picker’s Pavilion Sponsor

Bacon & Banjos 2019 is grateful to Cherokee Music Center who has come on as the sponsor and will be running our Picker’s Pavilion at the gazebo in the upper Park at City Center. Bring your instrument, check out one of theirs or just clap your hands because the Picker’s Pavilion will have picking circles for the duration of Bacon & Banjos!

What is Bacon & Banjos?

“Bacon is better with bluegrass”

A convergence of the salty goodness of bacon and the downhome sounds of bluegrass music at the Northside Hospital Cherokee Amphitheater (NHCA) with a portion of the funds benefitting the Woodstock Public Safety Foundation. Bluegrass music, focusing on the music of North Georgia, on the main stage all day. A bacon food festival throughout the NHCA with juried items presented for judging. More delicious food than your stomach can handle!  A craftsman alley with rustic creations for sale.
