Bluegrass and BBQ JamFestBuford GA -- First Annual Bluegrass and BBQ JamFest to be held on September 22, 2012 The American Legion Post 127 located at 2640 Sawnee Avenue in Buford, Georgia is very excited to announce The First Annual Bluegrass and BBQ JamFest to be held on September 22, 2012 on our campus located inside Buford, Georgia.

The American Legion will be hosting this spectacular event and will be looking to entertain over 1000 friends and families to share in a full day of music, incredible BBQ, anticipating over 50 vendors from in and around the southeast showing their wares, artistry and talent.

“We expect to have between 7-10 bands playing throughout the day and a main headliner in the evening. We want the entire community involved. This will be a family-fun-filled event and this being our first annual event, we are looking to kick this off in a great way” said Derek Dugan, event organizer for the Legion.

The event will be spread across the campus with a children’s entertainment area, craft vendors and at least two stages for music. Some of the Bluegrass bands that have already committed to the event are The Redstone Ramblers, Nu-Blu, Ken Scoggins, and GrassBackwards. Negotiations continue for more bands to join in for a fun filled event, and locals are encouraged to take part in an open stage jam session between 10 am and 12 noon, continuing throughout the day.

Dancers from around the area will be showing off their Boot-Scootin’ and Cloggin-style dance moves, along with an opportunity for Square-Dancers to get into the groove. “So if you love moving your feet to some great music, bring out the boots and the toe tappin’ cause we’re going to have a good-down home time” remarked Dugan.

Tickets for the event will be $15 for adults and $5 for children under 12 years of age. A special discount will be offered to American Legion members with membership card. Hours for the day-long event will begin at 10:00 am and go until 11:00 pm.
