Blues, Brews and Barbecue 2015

Downtown Allentown Events

The Hamilton District Main Street Program in partnership with the City of Allentown will present a day filled with live music, a variety of activities and great food for the whole family. With the opening of the PPL Center, Renaissance Hotel and many new businesses moving into downtown, a lot of excitement is building for this event and we believe it will be bigger and better than ever.

On Saturday, June 13, 2015, this celebration of summer will again feature live music by the hottest regional, local and national Blues bands, micro and domestic brews and delicious BBQ from all around the US. This free event continues to draw growing crowds of both barbecue and Blues lovers and this year, we plan to double the size of the event by expanding down to 7th and Hamilton Streets. This means two music stages, more performers and vendors and double the crowd!  

We are still looking for quality vendors to fill spaces along the 700 & 800 blocks of Hamilton Street. Participating in Blues, Brews and Barbecue gives your business the opportunity to be right in the middle of the Allentown's growing momentum - don't miss out!
