On the culinary side, local barbeque masters including Firefly’s Bodacious Bar-B-Que & Beyond (Marlborough, MA) and Lester’s Roadside BBQ (Burlington, MA) will fire up their smokers and serve up the best – and messiest – in backyard, southern fare. Homestyle favorites such as ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken and mac & cheese will be available. Additionally, some of Phantom Gourmet’s favorite food vendors will set up stations and dish out summer cookout-style cuisine including burgers, hotdogs, sausages, pulled chicken, turkey legs, steak & cheese subs, pizza, French fries and fried dough. For those looking to cool down, there will be an assortment of ice cream treats.
On the music side, popular New England acts will take the stage and provide live entertainment throughout the three days including country songstress Jessie Chris (Boston, MA & Nashville, TN), and more.
For hands-on entertainment, there will be family amusement such as a giant bouncy house, an inflatable slide and a fun house.
