Food opportunities at the Got to Be NC Festival, May 29-31 (Festival admission is FREE):

Vendors selling typical Fair foods (and some that are not so typical).

NC Food Expo, in the Exposition Building. Sample and buy NC food and wines. The website has a list of vendors. Cooking demo stage with recipes and chefs showing how to cook NC foods. Food Expo admission is FREE.

NC Pig Jig. Saturday only, 11-3:00. BBQ contest sponsored by Masons to support two children's homes in Oxford, NC. Teams will cook whole pigs, pork shoulders, and chicken. Pay $10 (free for children under 12) to sample as much as you can hold, then vote for your favorite team.

There's lots more fun that I didn't list here because it isn't all food. Read more about the Festival at .
