The 10th annual Bluesberry & Beer Festival takes place in downtown Norcross on Saturday, august 21st from 3 to 10 p.m.
The festival is centered at Betty Mauldin Park — that’s where the music stages will be. You can kick back there and relax to the blues.
But you can also wander the downtown area looking for merchants with the “cool blue dude” decal displayed. They’ll have bluesy specials, including berry-inspired food and drink (see below).
This unusual festival started with the idea of a blueberry day, with all the downtown restaurants featuring blueberry cocktails and gourmet dishes. Then someone got the idea to add blues music to the mix… and the rest is history.

- Ballast Point
- Goose Island
