11 teams of local chefs will be roasting whole heritage-breed farms from Falling Sky Farm at the Argenta Farmer's Market at Sixth and Main, NLR, starting very early Saturday, May 4. Gates open at noon with music by The Sound of the Mountain, the 2013 Times Musicians Showcase winner, and the Grammy-nominated Lost Bayou Ramblers. Craft beer and wine will be available.
At 3 p.m., judging of the pork will begin, along with servings, plus sides, for all ticket holders. The feed will last until 7 p.m., or until the pork is gone. Music will continue into the evening. The entertainment line-up includes Mandy McBryde, Davis Coen, Bonnie Montgomery, improv from The Joint, Riverboat Crime, The Sound of the Mountain and Lost Bayou Ramblers, who'll play a full set starting at 8 p.m.
Advance tickets for all-day admission, plus food, cost $25. They'll be $30 at the gate. Tickets for music only after 7 p.m. will be $10.
