Snowshoe Mountain Resort will host the annual Blues, Brews & BBQ festival this weekend, featuring a range of events, music, food and a big block party.
The festival will include tastings from local breweries including Bridge Brew Works, North End Tavern, Mountain State Brewery and distributors offering domestic and international brews. Snowshoe's top chefs will use local recipes to create finger-licking barbecue through the day leading up to the barbecue dinner.
This year's event will be taken to a whole new level with special guest John Mayall, making this a true blues festival.
Mayall is set to take the stage with opening act Elliot and the Untouchables at 7 p.m. Saturday.
The event will be packed with live music presented on the Snowshoe Village stage, while village and mountain activities will be open including Snowshoe's nationally recognized downhill mountain bike park.
"Each year this is one of my favorite events - a great day to get out and enjoy what the mountain has to offer," said Phil Duncan of Snowshoe Mountain.
The event will kick off today with a village block party.
