Fund for the Arts is pleased to present two of the signature summer events for Charleston, West Virginia - Blues, Brews & BBQ and Wine & All That Jazz.
Wonderful weather, plentiful food and beverage, and award-winning music have become the staples that attract thousands to the University of Charleston lawn year-after-year.
As part of Charleston’s FestivALL lineup, Blues, Brews & BBQ and Wine & All that Jazz have a lengthy record of success. Last year’s festivals were the best we’ve ever had in terms of ticket sales – totaling more than $110,000 in total sales!
Annually, Fund for the Arts’ festivals raise tens of thousands of dollars to help support Kanawha Valley arts groups. For the 2011 festivals, we raised more than $93,000 in support for local arts groups.
On behalf of the Fund for the Arts, I would like to thank everyone who helps make our festivals a tremendous success year-after-year. We could not pull it off without the continuous support of our generous sponsors and dedicated volunteers.
Also deserving of praise are the organizers of FestivALL, who do a wonderful job of promoting these and other events, as well as our local food and beverage vendors who provide a fun family atmosphere for all those in attendance.
Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank those who attend as paying guests – sustaining the Blues, Brews & BBQ and Wine & All That Jazz festivals as two of the most popular summer events in Charleston!
