Bands & Brews Takes Over Wilson Boulevard July 24 in Ballston

The inaugural Bands & Brews on the Boulevard will turn Wilson Boulevard into an all-day music festival, complete with a 200-foot street pub on Saturday, July 24, in Ballston.

Six bands will perform at a 30-foot concert stage from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., with a 200-foot street pub offering beer, wine and cocktails.

Attendees can enjoy live music performances by DJ Touch Basis, Andrew Savoia and Fordson Labs, Turtle Recall, Junkfood, Popstar Drive, Aztec Sun, and Bobby McKeys’ Dueling Pianos. See the full schedule of bands online.

This event is free and open to the public, but street pub tickets are needed for drinks. Purchase advance tickets with presale discounts online.

To sponsor part of the event or to register as a volunteer, visit Ballston BID’s website.

Bands & Brews on the Boulevard is a signature event of BallstonGives and will benefit the Ballston Bartender Relief Fund, an ongoing initiative to provide events and marketing for the restaurant industry in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
