Carrollwood Village will host a Blues & BBQ event on Saturday, February 26 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the Carrollwood Cultural Center, located at 4537 Lowell Road in Tampa.

Blues & BBQ will also host five food trucks competing for the title of Carrollwood’s Best BBQ.

For $10, event attendees can purchase a BBQ Pass, which will grant access to specially-priced tastings from each vendor for $5 per vendor. After enjoying each tasting, the patron will vote for Carrollwood’s Best BBQ. The winner will be announced at the end of the evening.
The event will take place under the trees behind the Carrollwood Cultural Center at Lowell and Casey Roads. Concertgoers can bring lawn chairs and sun umbrellas. Artisan vendors will be available, and attendees will be invited to participate in a community art project.
