A festival celebrating southern cuisine — from beer to bacon and biscuits — is returning to Tysons for a fifth year.
“This 5th Annual affair offers up all those pleasures that true Southerners live by — Beer, Bourbon, Barbecue, Boots, Bacon, Biscuits, Bluegrass, and Smoked Beasts,” the festival’s website advertises. “It’s a great day of beer sippin’, bourbon tastin’, music listenin’, cigar smokin’, and barbecue eatin’.”
Admission to the festival is $49 for a three-hour window on Saturday, May 22. Admission comes with a souvenir tasting glass and an all-you-can-taste sampling of beer and bourbon.
A $79 ticket offers a four hour window at the festival along with a BBQ dinner platter.
This year, the festival will be held at The Plaza at Tysons Corner Center (1961 Chain Bridge Road).
The festival site advises attendees to bring cash, as many vendors will not accept credit cards, and there might be lines at the ATM. Guests are also allowed to bring their own snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
No pets are allowed at the festival and service animals must be registered in advance. No weapons or outside alcohol are allowed either.
A full list of beer and bourbon vendors at the site is available online.
