YORK-Riverwalk Landing’s popular Blues, Brews, & BBQ festival and the Art at the River Juried Art Show return the first weekend in May following cancellations in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The Blues, Brews, and BBQ festival will feature craft beer from more than a dozen brweries, barbeque dishes, and popular blues musicians in Hampton Roads on stage at Riverwalk Landing. Scheduled performers include Bobby Blackhat Band, Cole and MaryAnn Delta Blues, On the Verge, and Fade to Blue.

Limited tickets are available for the Blues, Brews, and BBQ festival. Due to covid-19 restrictions, the event will be held in two time slots: 11am to 2:30pm and again 3:30pm to 7pm.

Meanwhile, Art at the River will take place 10am to 4pm on Sunday, May 2. More than 40 local artists including painters, photographers, potters, jewelers, and other artists will line Riverwalk Landing to display their work during this juried art show event. Art on the River will also include live demonstrations with woodturning from the Tidewater Turners of Virginia as well as live entertainment including a special performance by The Fifes & Drums of Yorktown.
