South Pearl Street Summer Music Festival/Blues and Brews

Summer Music Festivals
Second Saturday, June & August


What happens when you mix a warm summer afternoon, ice-cold draft beer, and some fun, funky music? You get the South Pearl Street Music Festivals. Inaugurated in 2007, the brainchild of a South Pearl Street merchant, the first Blues & Brews debuted on August 11th on the 1200 block of South Pearl Street.

The street was closed and featured a stage at the northern end of the block and farmers market vendors, craft beer brewers, and some local blues bands rocked into the night. Hoping to attract 1,000 people and not to lose too much money, the event was a huge success with more than 5,000 people on the street and–like any great party–a last minute beer run! The first year’s success encouraged the merchants to add a second event, dubbed BrewGrass.
Entering its seventh year, the music festivals have become a neighborhood tradition and a real shindig. The question remains–is it a music festival with really good beer or a beer festival with really good music?

Take the light rail down if you can...Hope to see you there!!

    A little confused... so we're all going to try to meet at Lincoln's from 11 - 11:30am, then head over to the event which doesn't start until noon... just trying to plan the best to meet up w/ others

  • Stacy

    Hi Doug, any sense of how long you'll hang out at Lincoln's Roadhouse before heading into the event? Just a 15 minute wait like hiking or more like hanging out there an hour or so before heading into event? Whatcha thinking?

    August 5

    • doug d.

      I figure maybe a half hour or so but will let the group decide.

      August 5

  • Jan L.

    Thanks Doug! I'll get down there as soon as I can.
