The Kenan Center in Lockport, NY is home to some of Niagara County’s largest events including the Niagara Wine and Beer Fest, 100 American Craftsmen – and now a new event, the Niagara BBQ & Brews Fest! The event will be held on Saturday, September 21 from 3-7pm. Tickets go on sale May 31!

The event will feature local BBQ restaurants, as well as locally made craft beer vendors including Flying Bison Brewing Company and 12 Gates Brewing. The outdoor event will be held on the Kenan Center campus, alongside the Kenan Arena.

“We are excited to meet the interest and wants of our community members who attend our Niagara Wine and Beer Festival annually in the winter, and are eager to attend an outdoor summer festival geared towards adults,” says Kenan Center Public Relations and Marketing Manager Parrish Gibbons Herzog.

The 21 and over event will include complimentary samples from local breweries and restaurants, as well as the ability to purchase full pints and meals. Music will be provided by Freightrain, an original classic blues band representing the talents of WNY with musicians Robert “Freightrain” Parker, Grace Lougen, Greg Leech and Diana Nowak-Riffel.
