The courtyard of the historic barn at Scarlett Thicket Farm in Kennett Square was filled with party-goers on June 11th at this year’s Blues, Brews & BBQ — a fundraiser for the Stroud Water Research Center. The courtyard served as a backdrop for The Rolling Thunder Blues Revue, which inspired hours of dancing to a wide range of music. Guests enjoyed a variety of local beers from Victory and Yards, a specialty drink – Stroud Summer Sling – and a great selection of BBQ.
Audi of West Chester had two cars on display, which a few guests took for a ride around the farm. And art from nine local artists adorned the walls. These artists had participated in the popular yearly art show, Abstractions, which was held at Scarlett Thicket Farm the previous weekend. Artists donated 30% of any sales made during Blues, Brews, and BBQ to the Stroud Center.
Between the horseshoes, corn hole, great music, and good food – there was fun for everyone from the youngest attendee to the oldest all while supporting the freshwater research, education, and restoration mission of Stroud Water Research Center.
