In 2008, the Westport Downtown Merchants Association decided to bring some good old southern charm to the town of Westport, CT and pioneered the Blues Views & BBQ Festival.
The two-day event was created to meld together the worlds of BBQ and Blues. Since the Festival’s inception, the music offerings have branched out to include Soul, Funk, R & B, a little bit of Rock & Roll – but our roots remain planted in the Blues.
The main stage musical line up offers approximately 19 hours of eclectic and diverse performances by top national and international musicians and a second stage was added to feature the very best of CT-based musicians.
The festival continues to have something for everyone, at every age.
Visitors enjoy top-name entertainment, great food and drink, and lots of family-friendly activities: bouncy amusements, eating contests, and chef’s demos.
Blues, Views & BBQ is a swingin’ street party, complete with tantalizing tastes and soulful sounds – and we invite you to join the fun.
