Norcross’ Annual Bluesberry Festival & BrewFest: June 15, City of Norcross, Georgia USA

Enjoy the Blues! 

City of Norcross, GA – On June 15 from 5pm to 10:30pm, local blueberries, craft beers and some of the best blues musicians in the region are at this year’s BluesBerry Festival & BeerFest on Jones Street in Downtown Historic Norcross.  Norcross’ Iron Horse Tavern is selling tickets to the BeerFest; for $40 enjoy unlimited 12oz samples from 14+ breweries offering several taps each – sample favorites like Monday Night Brewing, Sweetwater 420 Brewery, Goose Island and Terrapin Beer Company.  At 6pm, Little G Weevil opens up the evening of free outdoor music – Little G was named “best solo/duos act in the U.S.” this year at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, and tops international blues charts. He is followed by the emerging Mary Raindrop Band and then the Cazanova’s keep the music “blue hot” until 10:30pm.
Bring a blanket and chairs and settle in for a free evening of excellent music on Jones Street, and don’t forget to check out the rest of downtown during breaks. The “Burning Sensations” will be smokin’ the strings (and keyboard and drums!) inside 45 South CafĂ© and next door, Mojitos’ awesome house band will be in full swing, too.  Plus, (assuming Mother Nature’s berry crop is ready) a local farmer will be out with fresh-picked, pesticide-free berries and homemade blueberry ice cream. You’ll also want to visit The Blue Trees Project next to the Tavern….plenty of great photo opps there to help remember an excellent evening in the City of Norcross. # # #
