It’s almost time for the annual return of the Savannah Blues, Jazz & BBQ Festival on River Street. If you like sweet and smokey southern blues, jazz, and barbecue then this is one free festival you shouldn’t miss! It all happens during Savannah Blues Weekend, June 30th through July 2nd, 2017.
Each year around the start of summer, River Street comes to life for a weekend of live music and delicious, southern BBQ. This year’s Savannah Blues Weekend closes out June and starts July off with a rocking good weekend of hot food and music.
The Savannah Blues, Jazz & BBQ Festival is celebrating its fifth year and has grown to be one of the city’s most popular festivals. Last year’s lineup included Brett Barnard and The Hitman Band, Greg Williams, The Cory Chambers Jazz Band, Danielle Hicks, Jacey Falk, and Bottles & Cans. While this year’s lineup has yet to be announced, the festival always features the region’s hottest players.
Of course, the food brings people in, as well – and how could it not? The scent alone is enough to draw you away from whatever it was you were doing and pull you down to River Street! Savannah’s very best BBQ restaurants will be serving those spicy, sticky favorites we’re all helpless to resist. Racks of ribs, turkey legs, buffalo wings, pulled pork sandwiches, and more. Sides and drinks will also be available, and at very reasonable prices.
Blues, Jazz & BBQ also includes arts and crafts vendors and special events and sales at various River Street shops and restaurants. First Friday Fireworks are also a wonderful spectacle, helping to open the festival on June 30th, at 9 pm.
Kick off your summer with the Blues, Jazz & BBQ festival during Savannah Blues Weekend 2017!
