Blackburn Beer Festival 2017!

Blackburn Beer Festival is back!

After the success of 2016, the Blackburn Beer Festival is back for it’s fourth year, in aid of Blackburn Youth Zone. The festival idea was originated by a small number of local business people who wanted to bring a festival to Blackburn, after seeing similar events being hugely successful in other towns. Bowland Brewery has joined forces with Blackburn Rugby Club and will deliver an amazing Beer Festival in Blackburn. Come down to enjoy a
mouth-watering bank holiday, whilst receiving a variety of benefits for your company.

Blackburn Beer Festival is held at Blackburn Rugby Club, with over 1,500 people expected to visit the festival over the three days, where they can sample up to 60 terrific ales from a variety of breweries. The organisers have chosen the charity Blackburn Youth Zone to benefit from the event, where proceeds from the festival will be used to benefit young people in the town.
