Pig & Pint Prelude fundraiser Friday, July 7, to benefit Blues & BBQ

NORTH LIBERTY– North Liberty residents are invited to purchase tickets in a special presale for the Pig & Pint Prelude, a private fundraiser the night before Blues & BBQ on July 7 to benefit the annual event.
The official kick-off to Blues & BBQ weekend will raise funds to support the festival’s commitment to keeping admission to the Saturday event free for all attendees. Gates will open and food and drink will be available starting at 6 p.m., with entertainment beginning at 7 p.m. The night will be casual, and should wrap up around 9:30 p.m. No formal program is planned, just good old fashioned community building. The Pig & Pint Prelude is open to all ages, but there will be no organized kids’ activities.
Your all-inclusive ticket includes: entrance to the intimate 500-person Blues & BBQ kickoff event, pints from the Iowa Craft Beer Tent, barbecue buffet prepared by Mosley’s, music from boogie-woogie blues pianist, Chase Garrett, credit card processing fees (we’ll absorb those for you), and bragging rights that you are now, officially, a Friend of North Liberty Blues & BBQ.
Space is limited to only 500 attendees and North Liberty residents have first dibs. Individual tickets and tables are available for purchase online to those with a North Liberty mailing address (zip code 52317) for $45/ticket or $260 for a table of six. Non-residents and visitors will have the opportunity to purchase tickets beginning May 15 for the same price. If tickets are still available, they will increase to $55/ticket or $320/table on June 1. To guarantee seats together with friends or family, consider reserving a table for 6, as individual tickets will have no assigned seating.
