Annual event brings blues bands and microbrews to Des Moines Beach Park
The festival benefits Highline Music4Life, which provides musical instruments to low-income students in Highline Public Schools. The event is organized by the Rotary Club of Des Moines.
The Stacy Jones Band returns to the festival again this year. The musical line-up also includes Portland-based vocalist/bassist Lisa Mann, the Coyote Kings with Mush Morgan, and the Randy Oxford Band.
Beer, wine, and hard cider will be available for purchase by the glass in addition to tastings. To compliment your beverage, Rotarians will be grilling up bratwurst and B&E’s famous tri tip.
“Great music, food, and drink with a view of the sunset over the water! What better way to spend an afternoon?” said festival co-chair Lisa Meinecke. “Plus you are supporting music education in our local schools.”
The festival runs noon until 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 24 at the Des Moines Beach Park. Tickets are available at www.dmrotary.org, Airways Brewing Company, 99 Bottles, and B&E Meats. Admission is $25 in advance, $30 at the gate.
Free parking is available on-site. You must be 21 years old to attend.
