Punta Gorda Blues, Brews & BBQ Fest

Imagine a weekend eating the best local food, drinking the tastiest handcrafted beers, and dancing to amazing live performers. The Punta Gorda Blues, Brews & BBQ Fest has all of that on the menu—and more—this June.

The Punta Gorda Blues, Brews & BBQ Fest is a three-day event that runs from Friday, June 12, to Sunday, June 14. Each day offers new experiences in live blues music, fresh-off-the-grill BBQ, and local craft beer. Some of the featured musicians include Frank Greathouse and Screamin’ and Cryin’, Seth Walker, and Sena Ehrhardt.

Friday starts the event with a bang for VIP ticket holders, who get a special performance by Frank Greathouse and Screamin’ and Cryin’ at Fat Point Brewery. Regular ticket holders won’t be left out in the cold, though. They can hear amazing live music at TT Tiki Bar at Four points by Sheraton on Friday night.

Saturday night brings even more music for everyone with another show at TT Tiki Bar plus an additional show at Orange House Wine Bar.

The weekend comes to a relaxing but active end with Sunday’s harbor cruise. This special day brings another helping of great live music and delicious food and drinks thanks to King Fisher Fleet. You’ll enjoy a delicious brunch from Village Fish Market as you tour Charlotte Harbor and listen to live blues from Paul Cottrell.

Tickets for the Blues, Brews & BBQ Fest are $30 each. VIP tickets are available for $60 and grant access to special events on Friday and Saturday. Tickets for Sunday’s King Fisher Fleet Harbor Cruise cost $25. The gate opens on Saturday at noon for VIP ticket holders and 1 pm for regular ticket holders. You can purchase tickets by visiting Punta Gorda’s Chamber of Commerce homepage. Every ticket purchased comes with a special festival sampling cup.

Parking is limited, so trolleys will be available from Four points by Sheraton Hotel, 33 Tamiami Trail, starting at 5:15 pm on Friday and 12 pm on Saturday. The Harbor Cruise runs from 10 am to noon on Sunday, June 14

Port Charlotte Volkswagen wishes everyone a fun and safe time at the Punta Gorda Blues, Brews & BBQ Fest. Summer is the best time to enjoy live music and good food and drink with friends along the harbor. It’s also a great time to check out the new 2019 Volkswagen models we have available, and it’s never been easier to schedule a test drive with one of our brand-new Jetta or Beetle vehicles. And don’t let this summer pass you by without trying one of our Eos convertibles with the top down.
