    The music lineup includes six regional groups: two-time Atlanta Blues Challenge winner David Pippin Group, Tyler Neal, the John Pagano Band, Rick Fowler, Andrew Black, and Lola, one of Atlanta’s three established “Queens of Blues.” This is the third year for the blues festival component of the event.

    “We are thrilled to combine the City of Carrollton’s annual Fall Festival and Blues and Brews Festival into a one-day, fun-for-all event, Oktoberfest,” said Aundi Lesley, Carrollton Main Street director.”

    Adamson Square will be set-up for the kiddos in the morning, and we will transition into the afternoon with fun for the adults. As this event continues to grow, I think it will become a signature event for our town, just like Taste of Carrollton and Mayfest.”

    This year’s event is sponsored by City Tavern, Printer’s Ale, Scott Evans Nissan and Scott Evans Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep.
