Surry Arts Council is pleased to host the 2017 Mayberry Days Barbecue Cook-off again during Mayberry Days, celebrating 57 years of The Andy Griffith Show. It’s PIG! This is an officially recognized barbecue cook-off of the North Carolina Pork Council and they will have a representative at the judging to assist with information and answers to any of your pork questions. If you have never had North Carolina chopped barbecue, you are in for a treat because it is for sale after the contest, beginning around 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. Fresh barbecue will be available in one pound containers and sandwiches. Place your order ahead of time and have it waiting to pick up at the Andy Griffith Playhouse.
