Saturday, May 21st was the 4th Annual BBQ, Blues and Bluegrass Festival hosted by St. Joseph Today. It was a perfect early summer day, with lots of great music and awesome bbq. Families and fans poured into Whirlpool Centennial Park below the bluff from 12:00pm-8:00pm, unofficially kicking off the summer season in St. Joseph. We can keep writing, but figured pictures would better show you the incredible day in Michigan's Great Southwest!
4th Annual BBQ, Blues and Bluegrass on May 21st, 2016
Coco Montoya, Tinsley Ellis, and the Nick Moss Band were the headliners. As the sun set over Lake Michigan, they rocked the house!
Sam Bush's new-grass got everyone up and dancing!
We found dancers in the crowd, as well as folks camped out in the grass. Volunteers and staff wore the blue shirts; as you can see here, even volunteering at the festival was a great time!
There was a crowd from 12:00 until 8:00! The first people in line arrived at 10:30am.
There were 9 food vendors, including two impressive trucks. Lark's BBQ from Benton Harbor and the Greenbush Brisket Van from Sawyer rolled in with some impressive rigs, and enthusiastic staff.
We're excited to see you next year for the 5th Annual BBQ, Blues and Bluegrass!
