Broad River Watershed Association Benefit

UPDATE: The BRWA benefit has been postponed due to inclement weather.

A mini-music festival for the music festival disinclined, the second annual Broad River Outpost spring benefit offers an incredible amount of live music in a natural setting. The Broad River Watershed Association profits from this day of music, rafting, kayaking, swimming and camping for its work keeping the Broad River clean and safe. The Outpost offers canoes and kayaks, food, coolers, showers and more, and the music is perfect for a long day outside. Mellow moments come courtesy of Sea of Dogs and Jacob Morris, while Bubbly Mommy Gun, The B-53s, Casper and the Cookies and many more will help rouse you from the beer- and swimming-induced daze. Affordable, low-key and family-friendly, the event keeps the good parts of outdoor music festivals and leaves the rest.
