The Annual Bluegrass, Barbecue & Brew Festival at Patrick Henry’s Red Hill

…embracing the flavors and sounds of Southern Virginia at the home of Virginia’s Passionate Patriot & Fiery Fiddler!

This festival combines a LOVE of history with a LOVE of music, barbecue and Virginia craft beer! The Bluegrass, Barbecue & Brew Festival brings together the lifestyle of yesteryear with modern leisurely activities. Our intention is for the people to fall in love with Southern Virginia and all of the history, culture, food, beer and music it has to offer.

Our Annual Bluegrass, Barbecue & Brew Festival will feature two incredible bluegrass bands: Nothin’ Fancy and The Darrell Webb Band. (More information about the bands can be found on the Bands page).

We will have delicious local barbecue from Drug Store Grill and the Blueridge BBQ Shack and we will also have arts and craft vendors. (More information about vendors and breweries can be found on the Vendors & Activities page).

The four local breweries that will be featured during the festival are Apocalypse Ale Works of Lynchburg, Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company of Nelson County, Starr Hill Brewing Company of Charlottesville, and Legend Brewing Company of Richmond. We are also having a local cidery, the Bold Rock Cidery of Nelson County!
