Jump Blues. Boogie. Rockabilly. Shuffle. Gospel…and Chili. The 2nd Annual Gastown Blues & Chili Festival has it all! on Sunday September 19th from noon to 7 pm you can enjoy showcases from several local up-and coming and high profile musicians throughout the day.
What better way to combine music than with food! Gastown is know for it’s talented chefs and the Gastown Blues & Chili Festival is a great way to put the chefs to the test. Several local celebrity judges will decide who can make the best Chili in town. The winning batch will be available for sampling by everyone!
Last year, almost 5,000 visitors came to enjoy the good music and food. Twenty Gastown area restaurants and the Vancouver Fire Department participated in the Chili Competition, and the day was capped off with a performance from Blues legend, Jim Byrnes. I for one am very curious to see what they have planned for this year! For more information, click here
The Gastown Blues & Chili Festival is a celebration of community businesses, local residents, and will raise funds for a local music-based charity. A carnival-type atmosphere with games, a beer tent and other entertainment is guaranteed to have both young and old enjoying the vibe!
