One of Rowan County's largest events, Tilley Harley-Davidson's Biker Blues BBQ Rally and BBQ Classic is a Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned event and a North Carolina State Championship. We strive to ensure the event is family-orientated with something for the entire family. Since the inception of the event in 2011, we have donated over $10,000 to our selected charities.  This could not have been possible without the support of our sponsors. In our 2011 inaugural event, over 3,000 people attended.  In 2012, over 4,000 attended and each year thereafter keeps getting better.

Advertisement for this event includes local, state and national media so the event is seen by thousands. Not to mention you will be part of one of Rowan County’s biggest events ever. To keep the event admission free, offer so many activities, and support our charities as we have in past years, we need your support. 

Salisbury and Rowan County is fortunate to be part of a Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned event with professional teams competing for a chance to become Grand Champion with KCBS certified barbecue judges on hand to judge this contest. We have competition teams and judges coming from across North Carolina and many different states.

Our event is also an American Royal qualifier because we continue to exceed requirements by the American Royal Qualifying Invitational Contest. Therefore, our Grand Champions receive an invitation to compete in the American Royal World Series of Barbecue in Kansas City, MO each year.
