Blues, BBQ and Portside Views was the theme for this year’s Local Love Project fundraising event held at Portside Ventura Harbor.
Top blues musicians from throughout the county came together on Sunday, June 11, 2023, to support this year’s Local Love Project fundraiser. Held at the Portside Ventura Harbor clubhouse on Pierpont Bay in Ventura. Attendees were treated to a line up of incredible blues music by Kelly’s Lot, the Bobby Hart Band and Scott Detweiler. It was a fun-filled day of sunshine, dancing, and gorgeous Ventura Harbor views.
Nothing says summer like BBQ, and there was plenty of it on hand as Big Man BBQ served up record numbers of his mouthwatering BBQ. Local breweries and wineries such as Poseidon Brewing, Flying Embers, Four Brix Winery and Strey Cellars contributed to the day’s events and even the sun decided to make a grand appearance. The event highlighted not only the incredible work that the Local Love Project does to help individuals impacted by disaster in the 805, but also Portside’s local businesses and beautifully designed clubhouse space.
