Durham Blues and Brews Festival Enjoy 3 of the Best Blues Bands in the area and unlimited pours of the Best NC Craft Beers- all to benefit Local Charities and Programs. Come enjoy the fun and support a great cause!
What started as a rockin' good time has become a Durham tradition, filled with music, food, and outstanding craft beer!
This isn't a Beer Fest with music, or a Blues Fest with beer. It's a new type of event, designed to be a unique experience, by offering great Blues music and only North Carolina Craft Beers.
The Brewers will be on site to tell you about their Breweries and Beers while you sample from their selection. Not the "shots" you get at Beer Fests, but a full 12 oz. pour for you to enjoy while learning about their beers, and listening to great blues bands. This eliminates spending excessive time standing in lines and allows you time to enjoy the music, beer, and your friends.
Proceeds from the festival benefit local Durham charities and programs, including the Exchange Family Center, a Durham-based non-profit agency dedicated to preventing child abuse. Thanks to the support of our sponsors and ticket holders, over $75,000 has been donated to worthy Durham causes in the first three years. Visit the local charities page for a list of the organizations we have supported.
