We are so pleased to have 13 year old singer/songwriter Kirsten Sowers all the way from the Philadelphia area to come out with us on Saturday. Kirsten is taking some time off her vacation just to come by for a good cause, and we hope you will stop by the Frederick County Fairgrounds and see her.

Hot dog! We are so excited that Cornhole is coming to Hogging Up Festival in June thanks to our pal John from MIK Woodworking who will be setting up his handmade Cornhole boards for everyone to play, and even having a special Hogging Up Cornhole Tournament at the Hogging Up BBQ Festival (date TBA) !
But wait, there’s one in April if you don’t already know! It’s the 2nd annual one in Winchester April 6th at the Winchester Sportsplex. You can register here.
Hope to see you there!
And then back in June at Hogging Up!
Special thanks to Bill Flannery of Texas Brush who will be making some super cool Hogging Up Texas Brushes for our two top winners *Grand Champion and #Reserve Champion, and winner of the #Best of the Panhandle Award . We appreciate him donating them to our festival. This is in addition to any other prizes or trophies for these categories.
We love our Texas Brush, not only because it cleans your grill to a tee, but that it saves you money over using smaller grill brushes that get bent up and fall apart . Well, we used to have to replace our grill brushes every month and now we can just find satisfaction in walking so tall with such a big brush that doesn’t need replacing.
Here is our Texas Brush Review.

Band Bio: We are pleased to announce Dangerous Mood as our Staff Pick. This amazing young duo comprised of Trevor Davis (guitar and vocals) and Jordan McWhorter (vocals and keyboard) and they will win any crowd over. Both live in Winchester, Virginia and are in the process of recording their first CD. Their original music consists of a soulsy-blues folk all it’s own and for this festival Dangerous Mood will be also bringing some of their favorite Pasty Cline and Alison Kraus covers. You can see more about them on their website , or Facebook page! Tweet to them @Dangerous_Mood Website
They have a sound that really infuses old school blues with the folk/indie sound that is popular today.
The staff says, “Jordan’s amazing vocals will blow you away. Here them here. This duo is going places. We are lucky to have them play at our festival. Once they sell out stadiums, we may not be so lucky.”
