Canceled for 2021! We hope to see you in 2022!
Why did we postpone the Festival?
Unfortunately due to the large number of restrictions that would be required to meet Covid-19 regulation, the board decided that the festival would not be possible in 2021. We hope to have the 2022 festival as scheduled.
A two day summer street celebration featuring live blues music, world-class ribs, a wide variety of quality non-rib food options, children's activities, fan-cooled dining areas, and a beer & wine garden for our Blues/Rib-loving guests 21 and over.
July 31st & August 1st, 2020
