Brew York Music Festival was born in 2016, and will celebrate its 4th year on July 20, 2019. Hosted again by Maggie’s On The River in Watertown, New York, amidst the natural beauty and backdrop of the Black River and the Seaway Trail, this outside event has had tremendous success over the last four years and we hope to make 2019 even better!
As a group of dedicated music, spirits, craft beer, and artisan food fans, we aspire to provide the ultimate festival atmosphere for these artistic expressions and the extended community to flourish. Brew York Festival is dedicated to delivering the most enjoyable experience while providing a great value to the Northern New York community.
This year, we are aligning Brew York with The SPCA of Jefferson County. A portion of the proceeds will benefit this amazing organization. We will be holding a Pre- Launch party with 50/50 drawings and other fund raising efforts with live music from local musicians. The proceeds will benefit the SPCA.
Also this year, our theme is, “Come Celebrate the Summer of ‘69”!! On July 20, 2019, the day of Brew York, 50 years to the day, man first walked on the moon. A few weeks later, one of the most iconic music events in history, Woodstock, took place. We will be going back in time while also celebrating all that’s new with Out of this World Craft Beer Tastings, Galactic Grub, Lunar Jams, and Cosmic Kayak races....we also hope some groovy attire is spotted at this years fest!!
We recognize that an optimal festival experience extends far beyond the stage. It should be a blend of world-class music, local/state craft brewers/vendors, and community engagement. We take pride in our partner businesses and organizations. We’re eager to support all the good people and community leaders who have supported us on this journey. Long term business & civic partnerships will help to make our festival become another great Watertown event that the North Country looks forward to every summer; a beer & music festival like no other.
