alt The City of Asheboro will host the first annual Pigs & Pedals event in downtown Asheboro. The event will include a Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) sanctioned barbeque cooking competition with competitors vying for a $12,000 purse by cooking up chicken, pork ribs, pork and beef brisket.

Pigs & Pedals will be held in conjunction with the Criterium bike race in which cyclists from across the state and region come to Asheboro and compete on a closed circuit course along the streets of N Fayetteville St, Worth St, S Cox St and E Academy St. The races begin at 9 am and end with a professional race at 4 pm. Throughout the event, men and women of all ages compete in the bike racing. The bike race is sponsored by the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce & Heart of North Carolina Visitors Bureau and is in its fourth year being held in downtown Asheboro. To register for the Criterium as part of a six race series, click here. Also, the nationally acclaimed King BMX Stunt Show will be featured throughout the day on Sunset Avenue.

In addition to barbeque and bikes, the city has also scheduled the Castaways to play in Bicentennial Park on Friday, August 1st and the Part-Time Party Time Band to play on Saturday evening, August 2nd. Both concerts will begin at 6 pm with a beer garden in Bicentennial Park during the Friday and Saturday night events. This weekend is guaranteed to be one that you won’t want to miss.

“Being a part of the Chamber has opened many doors for meeting new customers. The Chamber also has a lot of information regarding Randolph County that you can use to get your name in front of the people you want to meet. My best advice is to get involved to see for yourself.”
