Views Of Blues & BBQ

If you weren’t at yesterday’s 4th annual Blues, Views & BBQ Festival at Levitt Pavilion and the library parking lot, here’s what you missed:

Amazing music — not just Charlie Karp (above) and his Westport Heritage Blues Band, but “Connecticut’s premier Zydeco band,” “Girls With Guitars,” much more.  The entertainment — like the barbeque — was smokin’.

People having a good time.  There were plenty of Westporters — and plenty who are not.  Music, food, beer, pig races and street performers brings out everyone.

Did I mention food?  Some of which you sure won’t see at the Westport Farmers Market.

And more people having a good time.

If you missed yesterday’s event, don’t worry.  Blues, Views & Barbeque continues today (Sunday, September 25), starting at noon.

There’s a special pie-eating contest at 3 p.m., and a rib-eating contest right after.

Kudos to the Westport Downtown Merchants Association, and all the sponsors, for this great event.

Coming on the heels of last weekend’s Slice of Saugatuck, we’re getting spoiled.

Hopefully, Green’s Farms has got something cooking next Saturday.

  3. Dan, You are too funny…… thanks for making me laugh, almost every day!
    A Greens Farms event sounds great, who wants to help plan?

  4. thank you thank you thank you to the folks who made this weekend happen! Saturday night with Anders Osborne performing right here in Westport on a gorgeous evening with a fired-up crowd was what it’s all about. The whole line-up was great. The Festival gets bigger and better every year. congratulations DMA!
