STONEWALL, TEXAS – Make plans to put on your dancing boots and head over to the LBJ Ranch on Saturday, October 28, for the annual “Barbecue on the Pedernales.” Co-hosted by the National Park Service and Friends of Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, this event will carry on a Johnson family tradition of Texas hospitality.

 

Dale Watson and The Lone Stars will headline the night’s musical entertainment. Dale Watson is a popular Austin-based traditional country singer and songwriter. Jake Penrod and his Million-Dollar Cowboy Band will open the show with their own brand of honky-tonk country music.

 

The Salt Lick will serve its famous mouth-watering barbecue. Tickets are $75.00 per person (children 12 and under are $15.00) and can be obtained at www.barbecueonthepedernales.com. Tables for eight are available. Tickets are limited and often sell out quickly. The event will run from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

 

In the 1950s and 1960s, Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson hosted large Texas-style barbecues in a grove of trees near their home on the LBJ Ranch. “All the world” was welcome at these western galas as guests-of-honor hailed from such places as Mexico, West Germany, Pakistan, and from nations throughout Latin America.

Johnson National Historical Park is a vital not-for-profit park partner that provides funding for many of the park’s preservation projects, educational programs, and interpretive exhibits. The “Barbecue on the Pedernales” is a highly anticipated fundraising eventfor the group. For more information, visit www.friendsoflbjnationalpark.org
