The first BoneYard Hoedown is right around the corner! We’re excited to join the Uptown neighborhood with our inaugural festival this weekend, June 14th and June 15th. The Hoedown features authentic Southern BBQ, craft beer, and live music from a variety of local and national bands and DJs. Two days filled with 20 hours of food, music and fun! The festival will take over BoneYard’s adjacent parking. Guests can enjoy the Summit Beer Garden, Columbia Winery Wine Garden, full-bar service bar sponsored by Aviv Vodka, and authentic Southern BBQ, including whole hogs, ribs, brats and a mess of southern delicacies.
We got a behind the scenes look at the event with Chef Jason Bush. Check out some event details from the expert himself!
Q: Have you ever been to a Hoedown?
A: BoneYard’s will stay true to a traditional hoedown– lots of good music and food, hanging out with friends, having a good time!
Q: What will the environment be like inside?
A: We are expecting a total of 3,000-4,000 guests over the course of two days! The inside is there to take a break from the heat, get in some air conditioning, grab some food and get ready to go back for the music.
Q: How do you plan on having food for 3,000+ people? Will you have food trucks and additional grills outside?
A: We are bringing in two 10 foot charcoal smokers outside and other food will be available concession style.
Q: How many hogs do you plan on cooking? Will the hogs be on display?
A: Approximately 3 hogs per day. The hogs will be on display dressed to the nines, apple and pineapple trees included.
Q: How did you come up with the rest of the event menu? How much different will it be than the regular menu?
A: 99% will be regular menu items with the addition of chili lime watermelon wedges as a nice refreshing snack! The special menu was chosen to be fast, convent, and tasty. Quick and easy!
Q: How will you prepare for such an extravagant event?
A: Roasting the hog is a 12 hour process, so we will start cooking early!
Q: What are you most excited for?
A: Wearing jeans, flannel, and shit kickers. A good ole fashion get down party!
Q: What do you foresee as being any challenges for the event?
A: We’re crossing our fingers for good weather! But like any hoedown, rain or shine we’re still planning on a great time!
