NEW ORLEANS – Fourth of July is traditionally a holiday spent celebrating everything red, white, and blue with your family and friends in the backyard. Yet, after more than a year of small, pandemic-restricted gatherings, Faubourg Brewing invites locals and visitors alike to make the most of this Independence Day holiday weekend by joining them for an inaugural Red, White, and Blues Fest, featuring some of the biggest names in Blues and BBQ in New Orleans.
The brewery is taking the backyard BBQ to another level at the 14-acre brew park with a weekend packed with live music, yard games galore, a kids’ zone, food vendors, a new beer release, and more!
Guests to the brew park are invited, as always, to bring their fest blankets, chairs and umbrellas and hang out for a day of great fun, local food and of course, ice-cold local beer. The whole family can enjoy a day at the brewery with outdoor games and activities available such as waterslide, face painting, cornhole, bocce ball courts, giant beer pong, spike ball, ladder toss, and more.
Doors open at 12 p.m. with music kicking off at 12:30 p.m. each day. The weekend features an all blues lineup with headliners Walter Wolfman Washington and Little Freddie King.
