Blues, Bandits & BBQ

Go Oak Cliff will present the 7th annual Blues, Bandits, & BBQ, benefiting KNON Community Radio and Mardi Gras Oak Cliff. The two-day festival will feature 30 barbecue teams showing off the best food they have to offer. In addition to the food and drinks available, the event includes a great music line-up in a nod to Oak Cliff’s history as the birthplace of legends like Stevie Ray Vaughn and T Bone Walker.
