Jump Blues. Boogie. Rockabilly. Shuffle. Gospel…and Chili. The Inaugural Gastown Blues & Chili Festival had it all, and we’re gearing up to make the 2nd Annual event even better! The neighbourhood celebration is set to take place on Sunday, September 19th, 2010 from noon to 7PM, and will showcase local up-and-coming and high profile musicians throughout the day.

Gastown is becoming ever-more recognized for the incredibly talented chefs in the neighbourhood, and the Gastown Blues & Chili Festival provides the opportunity for them to showcase their talents in the Chili Competition. Once again, local celebrity judges will be deciding who can deliver the best Chili in town, with gallons of the Fall favourite available for all to sample.

Last year, the event attracted close to 5,000 visitors to Abbott Street, and garnered more than 1.4 million media impressions. Twenty Gastown area restaurants and the Vancouver Fire Department participated in the Chili Competition, and the day was capped off with a performance from Blues legend, Jim Byrnes.

The Gastown Blues & Chili Festival is a celebration of community businesses, local residents, and will raise funds for a local music-based charity. A carnival-type atmosphere with games, a beer tent and other entertainment is guaranteed to have both young and old enjoying the vibe!
