Blues and Brew LogoFor the fifth year in a row, people from around Western Washington and beyond will be flocking to the shores of Puget Sound at the Des Moines Beach Park to savor tasty licks of mind-blowing blues played by some of the most renowned musicians of the region all while sampling the suds of local micro-brew masters in a fundraiser aimed at arming children in the Highline School District with musical instruments.

The Annual Blues & Brews Fest returns to the Des Moines, Wash., Water Beach Park Aug. 23.  The event, which runs from noon to 8 p.m., benefits the Highline Music4Life Program. All of the net proceeds are donated to charity thanks to the efforts of the Des Moines Rotary Club and community volunteers
“The response to this annual fund raiser has been inspiring,” he said. “A lazy summer day on the shores of Puget Sound, drinking good beer and listening to the blues seems like a pretty good way to support music education in our schools.”
This year, Blues & Brews Fest attendees can enjoy 17 micro-brews, three ciders, wine and some mead. The blues, from some of the Northwest’s finest musicians, will begin at 12:30 p.m. and keep rolling until 8 p.m.

This year’s line up includes The Wired Band, James King and the Southsiders, The Randy Oxford Band and the Curtis Hammond Band.

Tickets for this pet-free event can be purchased online for just $25 or at the door for $30. Every Blues & Brews Fest attendee will receive six tokens and a complimentary tasting glass with the purchase of a ticket.
