Festival Description

Time to get down and dirty with this amped-up celebration of blues, beer, and BBQ at the one-day, 10-hour festival. The programming promises musical powerhouses and a BBQ Alley brimming with smoky goodness. An outstanding lineup of national artists and savory offerings and cold brews, and you’ve got the recipe for a quality dose of southern hospitality right here in downtown Newport.
