Only the Louisville Blues, Brews & BBQ Festival allows you to get lost in a soul-satisfying haze of New Orleans and Memphis-style blues and pit barbecue smoke. Add our special Brews Tasting Area where you can sample craft beers, and it’s easy to see why people mark their calendars for this legendary festival at Louisville Water Tower Park year after year.

Bands and Schedule

Whether you like your blues hard-driving or more mellow crooning, you'll hear more than your share of favorites as our live bands lay down lick after soulful lick.  You can expect to hear covers of Blues legends such as B.B. King, Howlin’ Wolf, and Bob Dylan, as well as original tracks.
