Smokin’ Barbecue Festival Held in Historic Olde Towne and hosted by the Petersburg Chamber of Commerce, the Smokin’ Barbecue Festival celebrates spring with an afternoon of: Barbecue: Lots and lots of barbecue—from ribs to pulled pork, beef brisket, and pork tenderloin—complements a selection of sweets for balance. Seven tastings included with price of admission. Beer: Wash down meaty bites with ice cold refreshments available for purchase, not included in price of admission. Souvenirs: Local artisans and retailers will be on hand to dole out their wares and help you spot any sauce you might have on your cheek. Live music: The soundtrack will be supplied by River City Katz, the local favorites whose rockin’ repertoire ranges from Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” to Sublime’s “Santeria.” There's even a groupon I've added an image of. $10 admission for 2!
