The Pit’s 11th Annual 'Cuegrass Festival returns to the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh Sat., April 20, with a jam-packed day full of great 'cue, local brews and toe-tappin' bluegrass music!

We're closing down the streets around The Pit and firing up the pig cookers to serve plenty of our famous Eastern North Carolina-style barbecue and a selection of locally made beers. And on the stage we'll have some of our favorite bands.

It's all for a good cause. We're giving proceeds to SAFEchild and to the Junior League of Raleigh's BackPack Buddies program, which helps provide children at Lacy and Hunter Elementary Schools with healthy weekend meals and snacks during the school year.
