Description

Hello friends! We are back for the 7th Annual SK Family BBQ! This year we’ll be gathering in Bridgeport, CT on June 16th-18th 2017. Conveniently located just a short drive from New York City, Boston and Hartford airports, Bridgeport, CT is home to SK's early stomping grounds!

There will be two sets each on Friday and Saturday at The Acoustic. In addition to the concerts there will be a BBQ and lawn games on June 17th.

We’ve partnered with the beautiful Trumbull Marriott and have a fantastic rate for folks wishing to travel in for the weekend. To book a room with the SK Family BBQ rate, go to http://tinyurl.com/zbldbbz You are also welcome to call central reservations at 1.800.682.4095 or visit www.marriotttrumbull.com and enter the group code: SKFSKFA in the "Special Rates & Awards".

What is it?

This is essentially the ultimate #KelloggtownVIP experience, but whereas #Kelloggtown is a meet and greet for 15-25 minutes before a show, the #SKFamilyBBQ takes place over an entire weekend. "In 2010 I asked myself the question of what would I want to do with my favorite artists? The answer I kept coming back to was, grab a burger, play some lawn games, hang out, ask them a few questions, hear a few stories, maybe hear some tunes that I wouldn’t get to hear at a normal show.” So that’s what we’ve curated here.

A weekend worth traveling in for. A weekend with many of our core fans from around the globe and in some cases, their growing families. The event has been held in Washington DC three times and Western MA twice. We are thrilled to announce the Family BBQ's return to Southern CT where Stephen lives with his family. It’s our first time in CT since it’s inception in 2010.

Is it All Ages?

Yes it is. All children are different, and we'll leave it to you to gauge if it's something you think your kids would be into. The venue this year is a bar that we have rented out and each night there are two sets, so it may go later than some kids would be up for. The night shows are traditional SK shows, so it's something for everyone. Only you know your family, and they may want to attend the day show, and have a Mom and Dad's night out in the evening to enjoy drink specials. SK's family will be there taking part in the weekend festivities, and it's one of our great joys to see families come out together.

Will there be day passes?

Currently you can buy a day pass to the BBQ, Lawn Games & Kids Performance. This doesn't include any of the other weekend perks, or admission to the night time shows. If there is still space available on Memorial Day, we will release passes for the remaining tickets on Friday and Saturday night. This is a very intimate venue experience and we've currently sold 1/3 of the tickets with two months to go, so it's a gamble if you're hoping to be part of the weekend. If there are day tickets available, that's when we'll be putting them on sale via the event link & our website.
