The latest roundup of events coming up at historic, almost-century-old Kenyon Hall in West Seattle includes more than just a lineup of performances: Next Saturday, September 6th, it’s an an all-day, drop-in Bluegrass Barbecue Fundraising Festival, benefiting the hall’s “Flush Fund.” As explained in the announcement:

kenyonhall.jpgWe’re raising money for our Flush Fund (the bathrooms do need upgrading!) with a Festival of Great Food, Drink, and Music. For high-quality comestibles, we’ve engaged the catering services of our next-door neighbors, Locöl Barley & Vine. Chef Charlie has conjured up a special menu for the grill, accompanied by Locöl’s artisan wine and beer. There’ll be plenty of food, wine and beer for purchase, and after expenses, all proceeds will benefit the Kenyon Hall Flush Fund. Four local Bluegrass bands will alternate with complementary sets at the Mighty Wurlitzer. This is a 21-and-over event. No reservations are necessary. Please come on by and help us with our upgrade

$15 is the admission charge for next Saturday’s festival, which will run noon-8 pm. Never been to Kenyon Hall? It’s at 7904 35th SW. (Photo: WSB files)

  1. Kenyon Hall is a West Seattle treasure, and I hope the community helps support it.

  2. Too bad it’s 21 and over only! Would have been a great event to bring my daughter to (we love Bluegrass!). Oh well, hopefully they’ll have something more family friendly soon. We love Kenyon Hall & hope they’ll be around another 100 years.

  3. I agree with Cheryl, I am listening to Bluegrass right now and was excited to head up with the kids until I saw that it was 21 and over. Kids love Kenyon Hall and it would have been nice to have them as part of the celebration to support this wonderful West Seattle treasure.
