North Liberty Blues & BBQ

Thank you for coming!

Our eighth annual event was abbreviated by severe weather, but during the day, the place was packed and rocking. Thank you!

Our free celebration started as a way to highlight a newly completed park and commercial district. Since then, we have drawn thousands from across the state with kids’ activities, great music, local craft beers, and mouth-watering food. And we have weathered rain and storms and seen the continued loyalty that our community has for Blues & BBQ.

In 2014, we hosted more than 10,000 guests on July 12 in North Liberty’s new Centennial Park, at 1565 St. Andrews Drive. Named this past year, this beautiful park offers 40 acres for as much music, food, and fun as we could pack in. Blues & BBQ was the first major event in Centennial Park, and were proud to show it off.
