Blues and BBQ Fest to benefit Habitat for Humanity

The 21st annual festival will be July 21

Posted

The 21st annual Blues and BBQ for Better Housing benefitting Habitat for Humanity Metro Denver will be held Saturday, July 21 at Citizens Park in Edgewater.

Proceeds from the event will help build housing for nine families.

Habitat Denver has been helping families achieve the dream of affordable home ownership in the Denver area since 1979. Blues and BBQ, the longest running continual fundraiser for Habitat Denver, has raised over $200,000 to renovate and build homes since it was started in a small bar near Rockies Stadium in 1998.

“Blues and BBQ is one of our favorite events of the year at Habitat,” said Robyn Burns, director of communications and marketing for Habitat Denver. “Anyone who likes food and music, as well as having fun and supporting habitat, please come out.”

The day-long music festival will feature nine local bands, 10 food trucks, a beer garden, area vendors and a kids zone play area with inflatable bounce houses and games.

“Helping hard-working families become homeowners is so much fun,” said Ranger Miller, founder of Blues and BBQ, the lead singer of the Duke Street Kinds and pilot for United Airlines. “It’s so cool when you go out and work with Habitat for the day, they don’t do the work for you, they teach you hoe to do it and you do it. You build a porch right next to the person who is going to move into that house. It’s so cool.”

All-day entry passes are $10 for adults and free for children under 12. Tickets will be sold at the door and can be purchased in advance at www.bluesnbbq.com.
