One of Greenfield’s more unique events – the annual Blues, Brews & Stews Winterfest – will be held in the village’s downtown area on Saturday, Feb. 24, with an earlier start and more safety measures in place.
It all starts at 5:30 p.m. and is hosted by neighboring businesses Catch 22 Sports Pub, located at 250 Jefferson St., and Jerry’s Pizza, located at 237 Jefferson St.
For an admission fee of $15, payable at the door, those attending will be able to see two live bands; taste a variety of soups, stews and chili; receive a commemorative glass; and get their first beverage free.

Anyone can enter and soup, stew or chili. Entry forms are available at http://www.g3greenfield.org, at G3 on Facebook, or you can email a request for the form to g3greenfield@gmail.com

Tastings will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. with the winners announced at 9 p.m.
There will be “cauldron pots” set up in front of each soup, stew or chili where people can vote for their favorite by depositing money in them. First-, second- and third-place trophies will be awarded in two categories: chili and a combined category of soups and stews. There will also be a silent auction of items donated by local businesses during the event.
.
The music starts at 6 p.m. and will be provided by Smokin’ Mirrors and The Jimmy Hudson Band. One band will play at Jerry’s Pizza and the other at Catch 22.
Smokin’ Mirrors is a Washington C.H. band that plays a mix of blues, rock and funk from the classic to the obscure. Members Mark Thomas, Jeff Rogers and Brett Snively collectively have 80 years of playing experience.
The Jimmy Hudson Band is from Columbus and plays a taste of Memphis rock, soul, blues, rockabilly and some Nashville twang. The band is fronted by the vocals and guitar of Jimmy Hudson. He is backed by Molly Young on bass and Don Blakely on drums.
The Blues, Brews & Stews Winterfest is an annual fundraiser for Grow Greater Greenfield (G3), the local organization dedicated to improving life in and around Greenfield.
“We just hope to see everybody come out on a fun night and support G3’s efforts to revitalize our downtown and our community,” Royse-Bellar said.

2017 Blues Brews and Stews

Hosted by a pair of neighboring businesses, the fifth annual Blues, Brews and Stews Winterfest returns to downtown Greenfield on the last Saturday in February with food, drink and music to help chase away the winter doldrums.

The event benefits Greening Greater Greenfield (G3) and will be held from 7 to 10:30 p.m. Feb. 25 at Catch 22 Sports Pub located at 250 Jefferson St. and Jerry’s Pizza located at 237 Jefferson St.

For an admission fee of $10, charged at the door, the winterfest offers those taking part a chance to taste a variety of local soups, stews and chili. Alcoholic beverages and food tasting will be available at each location.

“This is our fifth year and the festival is growing with more than 20 entries expected to participate in the cookoff,” said G3 Committee member Shari Royse-Bellar. “There will be a chance for festival goers to vote on their favorite soup, stew and chili. Bragging rights will be awarded to the winners, so we want to encourage those in attendance to taste and be ready to cast their vote.”

The event will also include blues acts The Smokin’ Mirrors and Duece ‘n a Quarter performing throughout the evening.

The Smokin’ Mirrors will be at Jerry’s Pizza.

“The band plays a mix of blues/rock/funk from the classic to the obscure. Whether a bluesy twist on a rock classic or a funky twist on a blues standard, it’s always a smokin’ hot reflection of the original. Mark Thomas, Jeff Rogers and Brett Snively collectively comprise 80 years of playing experience,” G3 said in a news release.

Deuce ‘n a Quarter will be playing at Catch 22 Sports Pub.

“The band is fronted by the strong voice and wailing harp of Brian Peters. He is backed by one of the tightest rhythm sections in mid-Ohio with Steve Perakis on bass and Andre Scott on drums,” the news release said. “Matched by the electrifying guitar of Jeffrey Allen and the smooth keys of John Sipher, their rich sound of original music and classic covers is treated like an old friend as they faithfully add to the musical expressions of their many legendary influences. Teamed with Brian’s lyrical narrations, the band fosters the acceptance and romanticism of life’s physical and emotional hardships which, after all, is what the blues is all about.”

The Blues, Brews & Stews Winterfest, sponsored by G3, Anderson-Ebright Funeral Home, Wright’s Lawn Care, Edgewood Manor, Gallery & Storage, and Greenfield U-Haul, will benefit G3, the local organization dedicated to improving life in and around Greenfield.
