Annual Rivers and Brews Blues Fest

Tucked away high up in the Southern Rockies, Red River, New Mexico is a tiny little town that does everything in a big way. This former mining town has been a summer resort location for nigh unto a century, luring vacationers with its cool, fresh mountain air, spectacular alpine vistas, wildlife, and recreation opportunities.

This weekend marks the third year of the Rivers and Brews Fest, bringing together great blues music, delicious food and micro-brewed beer, for a fun getaway in the mountains.

Events start with an informal jam session on Friday night. The Rivers and Brews Fest itself begins on Saturday, and takes place by the Red River in the middle of town. A food court is set up offering lots of great food from local restaurants, along with a number of fine selections from New Mexico’s oldest microbrewery.
Saturday night the Red River Trolley will entertain you with music as it transports you to various music venues at Red River’s favorite bars.

So bring a lawn chair or blanket, sunscreen, and your camera, and come on out for a great day of blues and fun in Red River!
