There will be music – and the aroma of sweet wood smoke – in the air this Labor Day Weekend.
Back for its 10th year, the annual Bands, Brews and Barbecue Festival will be held from 12:00 noon to
6:00 p.m. on the grounds of the Manassas Museum, 9101 Prince William St., Manassas.
As in years past, the ticketed event will feature award-winning craft beers and distilled spirits, some of Northern Virginia’s best barbecue and an incredible lineup of live music throughout the afternoon.
“I look forward to Bands, Brews and Barbecue every year,” said Deltone Moore, president of the Historic Manassas Inc., board of directors. “I love that visitors can experience so much the area has to offer at just one event so close to our great downtown businesses.”
Music will be provided by local favorites Scarlett Awakening, Michael Christopher and Shakin’ Woods throughout the day. Visitors can expect samples of the best beer and spirits from area breweries and distilleries including:
- Cedar Run Brewery
- Eavesdrop Brewery
- Falls Church Distillers
- KO Distilling
- Lost Barrel Brewing
- Lost Boy Cider
- MurLarkey Distilled Spirits
- Ornery Beer Company
- Rocket Frog Brewing Company

A cornhole tournament will also be held on the Manassas Museum grounds. Registration for partners begins at noon and the tournament will kick off at 1:00 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place.
