Lake Lanier Islands presents BBQ, Boots & Blues Festival

Can you smell what Lake Lanier Islands is cooking?? It’s BBQ like you’ve never seen before!! In partnership with and support of the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation, Lake Lanier Islands is very pleased and excited to be hosting the first annual BBQ, Boots & Blues Festival on November 3rd, 2013! Gather ’round as more than 20 local hand-picked restaurants show off their BBQ-cookin’ chops on the Peachtree Pointe event field and listen to some amazing musicians jamming out under the crisp blue sky all day long.


There’ll be tons of fun for all ages! In addition to the restaurants and live entertainment, we’ll have artist tents, a Sports Center with the Atlanta Braves and Hawks fan teams, a Kid’s Corner, and dealer car show will cover the event field with a “Cruise-In” featuring some really awesome classic cars. Do you guys remember former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker? Ohhhh boy yes you do! He’ll be there signing autographs and taking pics for all you Braves fans out there! The really awesome news is that admission to the festival is FREE with purchase of a parking pass! BBQ tastings range from $0.50-$6.00. BBQ, Boots & Blues is a rain or shine event.
