Brewgrass Festival Message

The pieces are finally in place for the 10th Anniversary of Brewgrass. After much struggle and hard searching by the organizers, the City of Asheville has graciously agreed to allow Brewgrass to be on a City street. This year's event will be held on Market Street directly behind Barley's, September 23rd, Noon-7:00pm. This area (historically known as the "Block") is currently under revitalization and traditionally was a thriving business and entertainment district. Brewgrass is also pleased to add Eagle Market Streets Community Center as an additional beneficiary of the event.

The bands are booked and the Brewers are ready. 46 breweries will be featured this year. We have several new comers to this year's event. We will also be announcing the winner of last year's People's Choice Award. Attendees will once again be able to vote for their favorite. The music line up is one of the best we've had. John Cowan performs one of his only outdoor shows this year at Brewgrass. We also bring back Brewgrass alumni the Greasy Beans. Robinella and the CC String Band are also back after once being "showcased" at Brewgrass. Now they are nationally signed and growing in popularity every day. Also gaining recognition on the national scene are the Gibson Brothers. They were recently featured on XM's Bluegrass show. We are also proud to introduce Whitewater Bluegrass, one of Asheville's most popular bluegrass bands.

Online tickets are selling like hotcakes. Last year's event was sold out - Make sure to buy your tickets now so you won't be turned away at the gate. Online ticket sales will be cut off MONDAY SEPT 18th, to insure that will call line will run smoothly. Designated driver tickets are available ONLINE ONLY, no designated driver tickets will be sold the day of the event. Check out the website brewgrassfestival.com for more info. We are exited about this year's anniversary and look forward to seeing eveyone back again.
