Poverty Bay Blues & Brews Festival will rock Des Moines on Saturday, Aug. 24


Four of the Northwest’s top blues bands will play at the 4th Annual Poverty Bay Blues and Brews Festival on the shores of Puget Sound on Saturday, Aug. 24.

This annual fundraiser – organized by the Rotary Club of Des Moines – features tastings from 11 local microbreweries, plus hard cider and wine.

The festival benefits Highline Music4Life, which provides musical instruments to low-income students in Highline Public Schools.

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.

Here are some videos from bands you’ll see at this year’s fest:

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.
