The popular Downtown Bounty festival is getting a new name and a new concept.
The festival, which is scheduled Sept. 26, now will be the BBQ, Blues and Brews Festival. The change was announced by Downtown Bounty’s sponsor, Fuquay-Varina Downtown Inc.
The organization will pair up with local businesses for the new festival. It will feature live blues and bluegrass music along with beer and food from Aviator Brewing Company, Draft Line Brewing, The Brick Bar and Grill and The Mill.
There will also be a barbecue competition, according to the downtown association’s Facebook page.
