Smoke On The Mountian
July 20, 2018 - July 21, 2018Free
This competition, held each July, is the official Virginia state barbecue championship. The streets of downtown Galax are packed with people and the air is filled with fragrant clouds of hickory smoke and the tangy bite of vinegar and mustard, mingling with the sweetness of tomato and mouth-watering sizzle of slow-cooked pork. Smoke on the mountain promises all that, plus live music, shopping, children’s activities and other attractions.
