The Durham Blues and Brews Festival is the main fund raising effort of the Exchange Club of Greater Durham, a service-oriented civic club. In 2015 we set out to create a unique music festival experience that served only NC craft beer with proceeds benefiting our communities. And, we’ve succeeded! After a COVID-19-induced break, we came back. The 2023 rally has just finished so we don't have totals yet, but we know that the total for the first 6 years of contributions to non-profit organizations in the Durham area, across the nation, and abroad was $190,000. We’re not stopping here. There is so much need in our community.
The 2023 Festival is drawing near, and it’s going to be awesome!
Like Downtown Durham itself, the Durham Blues and Brews Festival has its own unique vibe.
