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 began with two BBQ competitions, for amateurs and certified pros. In fact, the “pros” competition was an official Kansas City BBQ Society Competition and served as a Connecticut Sate BBQ Championship. The amateur event has become “Cookin’ for a Cause,” where teams come together for the community with proceeds donated to the Westport Woman’s Club Food Closet which provides food for needy families.
The ‘Q continues to have something for everyone, at every age.
Visitors enjoy top-name entertainment, great food and drink, and lots of family-friendly activities: bull rides, bouncy amusements, eating contests, chef’s demos, and new this year, the opportunity to be a judge in the People’s Choice Wing Contest.
