We are excited to announce the BBQ & Beer Festival will be in Santa Clarita on May 6-7! Our tummys and our taste buds are excited too!
California’s biggest traveling beer festival is going to be finding a home in Santa Clarita for the first time next month, bringing with it two days of the best craft beers and tasty food trucks that California has to offer. In addition, the BBQ & Beer Festival is proud to announce the bands and amazing BBQ & sauce vendors that will be gracing its grounds over the weekend.
Friday will feature The Oles, a rocking hip-hop infused reggae band from Santa Barbara who have enjoyed a myriad of success both at home and on the road. Joining them in providing Friday’s soundtrack will be R&B influenced dance machine The Bomb.
Saturday’s entertainment will include Caribbean fusion heavyweights Upstream, who have been mesmerizing audiences worldwide for the better part of two decades. First class tribute act Skinny Little Twits will be serving up their trademark “Ultimate Tribute to the Legends of Rock”, and Highway Starr will be bringing the best of modern (and classic) country hits to the Santa Clarita stage. Finally, LA reggae-pop group SayReal will be imparting their good vibes on the brews-loving crowd at the festival.
