Event Canceled for August 9, 2020.  We look forward to May 1, 2021 and returning bigger and better than ever before!  Thank you for everyone support, stay safe!


Due to several factors, the most important of which being public safety, this year’s Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival has been canceled. The initial spring date had been pushed back to August with hopes the pandemic might be better under control by now. Unfortunately, the latest tracking numbers from the Virginia Department of Health illustrate that is simply not the case.

Given the social nature of this event and the inclination to gather in groups while consuming alcohol and listening to music – this seemed the most responsible decision to help protect the community. Organizers of the event were also challenged to find volunteers. Any tickets already purchased will be refunded.

We look forward to making the return of this annual festival in May of 2021 a resounding success!
