Certainly there are way more than 3 reasons to attend this fun and food filled event, but here are 3 that will convince you to attend. 

1. Food Trucks

Townsquare Media employees were treated to a heavenly delight from Holy Smoques BBQ Fusion when they came to the radio station and cooked us breakfast, and their lunch and dinner fare is just as angelic.  We can't wait to try it at Utica's Brews and BBQ.

Come Fry with Me will also be there serving up some of the tastiest French Fries we've ever sunk our teeth into. Garlic, Salt and Vinegar, and Cajun are just 3 of the 14 varieties they offer. Several other food trucks will be there including: Manga Macrina Wood Fried Pizza, Squeezes Lemonade and Kettle Korn , Mr. Zee's Street Eats, and The Grapevine.


2. Live Music

Nothing says springtime in Central New York like outdoor concerts, and Utica's Brews and BBQ  is proud to announce that "The Weight Band" will be performing at the event.

If you're not familiar with their classic rock music, they're a musical force to be reckoned with. According to their website:

The Weight is a five-piece ensemble featuring Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante from The Band, Brian Mitchell of the Levon Helm Band , and Albert Rogers and Marty Grebb, who worked with Rick Danko and Richard Manuel of The Band.



3. Beer

Need we say more.
