Changes Coming To Blues And BBQ Festival
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WRSP) —
There will be some significant changes to this year's Blues and BBQ festival.
Barry Friedman, the owner of The Alamo restaurant in Springfield, recently acquired the festival from Downtown Springfield Inc.
Financial losses on several downtown festivals led DSI to revamp its festival schedule.
One of those changes was moving last year's Blues and BBQ to October.
Friedman says he was against the move and now plans on moving it back to summer.
This year's Blues and BBQ is set for August 26 and 27.
