Huge crowds enjoyed yesterday’s opening of the 10th annual Blues, Views & BBQ Festival, at the Levitt Pavilion and Westport Library parking lot.
Rain kept attendance down early today. But as soon as the drops stopped, folks came. The lawn and lot were filled nicely from 2:30 p.m. on.
Organizers pushed the schedule back slightly. Anders Osbourne is now set to play at 5 p.m. Deep Banana Blackout follows at 7.
There’s still time to enjoy one of Westport’s greatest music-and-more events. For details, click here.
The Levitt Pavilion main stage offers some of the best music anywhere….
… while in the library parking lot, future stars from the School of Rock play.
For the 4th year in a row, Dane Tilghman came from Pennsylvania with his blues-oriented art.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Harvey was not far from organizers’ minds. The Westport Downtown Merchants Association collected food and clothing for victims, and donated proceeds from yesterday’s BBQ cooking competition to relief efforts.
