Virginia Chili Blues & Brews Festival 2017
Whether you’re a serious chili lover or just love the combination of chili, blues, and craft beer, the Virginia Chili Blues & Brews Festival has a ticket with your name on it!
In its 10th year, you’re encouraged to “dust off your grandma’s recipe or conjure up a recipe that would make grandma do the two-step.”
That’s some serious chili talk!
With over 3,000 attendees expected this year, the event is held in downtown Waynesboro in the Lumos Plaza, formerly Spring Lane.
All for a good cause! Virginia Chili Blues & Brews Festival benefits the Waynesboro Arts & Culture Initiative.
The Chili Peoples’ Choice Award Cook-Off
Everyone who enters the chili contest is vying for more than $2,000 in prize money from the Chili Peoples’ Choice Award. So grandma’s recipe better be pretty darn good! But if you’re not there to win the big prize money, show up instead for the chili tasting, incredible blues music, and the mega and micro brews.
To us, that seems the best reason to go anyway!
For beer, there will be from American classics like Coors Light, Blue Moon Belgian to the craft beers like Stable Craft Brewery and Seven Arrows. So there’s no problem finding a beer that your palate appreciates. But what’s beer without good entertainment? And there’s plenty of that on hand.
Serious Blues Music
With acts like The Lorie Strothers Blues Experience, The Bush League, and Sun Dried Opossum, you’ll be deep in the heart of blues territory.
The headliner for the show is international blues artist, DuWayne Burnside, and festival goers are itching to hear him play.
Burnside has played with the likes of Little Jimmy King, Albert King, B.B. King, and Bobby “Blue” Bland. It’s a killer combination of blues music and food. But it’s only for one night.
