For the past 20 years the BCPA organization has sponsored the Butner Chicken Pickin. The event is held annually on the first Saturday in June from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and includes a wide variety of activities for everyone. Friday night gets things started with a live band and dance at the Solders Memorial Sports Arena. Saturday starts bright and early as vendors complete their setups and local entertainment begins on the small stage. The event includes lots of local food vendors, crafts, rides for the children, our headliner band at 12:15 PM on the main stage and a BIG car show. In 2013 we had approximately 90 vendors in 130 spaces and close to 200 cars and motorcycles entered in the car show. Vendor spaces sell-out quick so get yours early if you are interested.
