Blues & Brews Fest

Celebrating the musical history and essence of New London

The New London Blues and Brews Festival is a collaborative effort between downtown businesses, non-profits, arts and cultural organizations as well as local musicians. The idea of the BBF originates from City’s musical background, especially blues history as researched by the organizing committee. The weekend features dozens of performances spread throughout downtown and celebrates the musical history and essence of New London. Utilizing regional performers, we plan to bring in over 2,000 guests to the area as well as engage locals in this exciting effort.
