Plan Your Boots & Brews Weekend

Come for ‘Boots & Brews,’ stay for the beaches, shopping and adventure!

It’s time to swap your surfboard and flip-flops for a cowboy hat and jeans! The legendary Boots & Brews Country Music Festival returns to Ventura, Saturday, September 21 with a rip-roaring lineup of talented singers and musicians. New this year, the event will be held at


the beautiful San Buenaventura State Beach Park, putting a fun, countrified spin on the saying “surf and turf.”

Concertgoers can get their Western twang on while enjoying cold beer from Firestone Walker Brewing Co. and Coors with tasty bites from local food vendors, such as Busy Bee, Mom & Pop’s Tacos, The Deli Doctor, and more!

Country rockers Daniel Bonte & The Bonte Fide kick off the festivities onstage at 1:20 p.m., followed by Country/pop singer Niko Moon at 2:45 p.m., and then the bluesy indie vibes of David Nail at 4:15 p.m. Closing out the evening will be honky-tonker Easton Corbin at 5:45 p.m. and Georgia-born crooner Billy Currington at 7:45 p.m.
