A Festival for the Whole Family Coming Soon to Rock Creek Park

Put this winter weather in the rear view mirror and get ready for the summer at the Lewisburg Rotary Club’s Festival on the Rocks featuring Prichard’s BBQ Cook-off. The Lewisburg Rotary Club has put together a huge festival event at Rock Creek Park in Lewisburg, TN for June 3 and 4, 2011. It will be two days of fun for the whole family as Dad can test his grillin’ skills at the Prichard’s BBQ Cook-off or marvel at the hot rods and hot rides at the Cruise-In. Mom can browse the yard sale bargains along with the arts and crafts as the little ones can enjoy rides and games galore. And everyone can enjoy a day an evening of great music live on the Rock Creek Park stage featuring Nora Mills, Us, Two & Him, Mike Mosier Band and special guest headliners Joey + Rory. Fresh off their Academy of Country Music Awards nomination for Top Vocal Duo, husband and wife team Rory Lee Feek and Joey Martin Feek will take the stage at Rock Creek Park to perform their hits. After winning last year’s ACM Top New Vocal Duo award, Joey + Rory have hit the big time in country music but they still find time to cook and perform at their restaurant just down the road in Pottsville, MarcyJo’s. Do not miss this performance as Joey + Rory bring their sensational live show to Rock Creek Park. And if that isn’t enough, the Rotary Festival on the Rocks will host a 5K Fun Run and a Cornhole Tournament, a Silent Auction of unbelievable items, tethered hot-air balloon rides and the inaugural Little Miss & Mr. BBQ Contest. But for you grillers and sauce connoisseurs, it’s all about the BBQ Cook-Off. This year, Prichard’s Distillery from Kelso, TN is sponsoring the BBQ Cook-off that has been a great success the past four years as part of the Goats, Music and More Festival. This year’s BBQ Cook-off is destined to be the best yet with more professional and backyard cookers serving up chicken, pork ribs, pork, brisket and a their own special sauce made with Prichard’s Distillery products. The Lewisburg Rotary Club’s Festival on the Rocks and the Prichard’s BBQ Cook-off has been a year in the making to help the Lewisburg Rotary Club raise money for a host of community and global services. The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self” and the Lewisburg Rotary Club has been serving Lewisburg, Marshall County and those in need around the world providing funding for scholarships, funding for the fight against polio, funding for housing in third-world countries and donations of items and supplies for several local charities and organizations that provide and supply much needed services in Marshall County. Come help this mission continue and have a whole bunch of fun in the process as the Rotary Festival on the Rocks and the Prichard’s BBQ Cook-off comes to Rock Creek Park in Lewisburg, TN on June 3 and 4, 2011. Events and activities including the musical entertainment and the BBQ Cook-off are sponsored by the Lewisburg Rotary Club, Prichard’s Distillery, First Commerce Bank, First Farmers and Merchants Bank, First National Bank and Lyons Chevrolet-Buick-GM of Lewisburg.
