Grillin’ and chillin’ with NH’s best “smokers!” (on the griddle or on the fiddle)

This picnic-style event by the pond at White Park will feature an incredible BBQ feast, live music!, and plenty of outdoor space for you to BYO chairs or picnic blanket.  What better (and safe!) way to support CCEH in raising funds to achieve its mission of ensuring that our community has safe, stable, decent and affordable housing for all.

BLUEGRASS BBQ MENU 2021

For day of, walk up guest, you can still purchase: a brisket ($15) or pork sandwich ($13), a hot dog ($5) or a vegetable burger ($7) (Availability may be limited latter in the day)  As of 7/24, meals are sold out.   


A special thank you to our Bluegrass BBQ Platinum Sponsor, Wilcox & Barton, Inc. This event is made possible because of a massive 20-foot smoker that can provide smoked delicacies for the entire event. The smoker’s creator, Bill Wilcox, has a passion for fire, flavor, and giving back to the community, so he established Rock House BBQ as the nonprofit philanthropy arm of his environmental, geotechnical and civil engineering company, Wilcox & Barton, Inc.

 

“Wilcox & Barton, Inc. is excited to partner with Concord Coalition to End Homelessness and support its mission to end homelessness in the Capital Region. As a New Hampshire company with a corporate office in Concord, we care deeply about the community and agree that every individual should have a place to call home.”

Bill Wilcox, President, Wilcox & Barton

Whiskey Prison (1:15-2:30)

“Whiskey Prison was born out of the punk scene of Manchester in the early years of this century. The band covers a range of Irish and American folk tunes and slips in an occasional original when you least expect!”


Bow Junction (2:30-3:45)

Bow Junction is a quartet based in central New Hampshire delivering a diverse blend of hard driving bluegrass and folk with a touch of Celtic and gospel. Combining a respect for tradition with an ear for innovation, this seasoned New Hampshire band has been entertaining audiences at town fairs, church halls, and concert stages since 2003. Their influences included Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris, and many more.
