Come hungry and sink your teeth into all-American barbecue flavors! The House of BBQ in Red Gold Heritage Hall boasts an impressive menu of Silver Dollar City's signature barbecue specialties. Plus, the All-You-Care-To-Eat Rib Feast in Reunion Hall serves up mouthwatering barbecue family-style from 3pm to park closing each day

And whether you're a seasoned barbecue pro or just a passionate weekend griller, you must visit Bottle Neck Bros. Sauce Shack located on the Square. Sample more than 150 different barbecue sauces, including Silver Dollar City originals, and purchase your favorite flavor. 

"Silver Dollar City's month-long Bluegrass & BBQ Festival, named Bluegrass Event of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2011, arguably presents more bluegrass bands on multiple stages to more new audiences than any other event in the nation.
