SATURDAY JULY 3, 2021
Since 1947, the community of Moreland has celebrated our nation's INDEPENDENCE DAY with an annual barbeque and downtown celebration.
The 2021 Edition of this INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION includes barbeque cooked by Moreland's own BACKROADS BBQ and PUCKETT STATION FESTIVAL
BACKROADS BARBEQUE serves up yummilious barbeque pork for INDEPENDENCE DAY 2021! Serving starts at 11am at the Lewis Grizzard Barbeque Pavilion at Historic Moreland Mill on Main Street. BACKROADS will offer BBQ Pork Plates which include: BBQ Pork, Brunswick Stew, Bread, Chips, Pickle, & Water or Tea. ($10/plate) Serving will last as long as the tender BBQ is available; first come, first served.
In honor of the early name our town, MCAA continues the tradition which originally supported the Erskine Caldwell Museum by hosting PUCKETT STATION FESTIVAL for INDEPENDENCE DAY. PUCKETT STATION FESTIVAL celebrates our collective heritage by hosting a day of fun through cultural arts. Our market features crafters showing and selling handmade and homemade wares; our musicians perform patriotic and popular; our museums showcase new exhibits; local food vendors offer local recipes and treats; kids find fun on the town square. Check out this year's schedule.
