MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A new festival filled with food, drink and music is scheduled Easter weekend.

The inaugural Beer, BlueGrass and BBQ event will take place Saturday, April 19 at Valor Park in the Market Common. Festivities kick off at 11:00 a.m. and last until 7:00 p.m.

Bluegrass pickers will be pickin' and playing music all day, including: Barefoot Movement, Grasstowne, Saw Grass and Ronnie Bowman.

Due to an expected increase in traffic for the Easter holiday, drivers can reach Farrow Parkway by taking Highway 17 Business to avoid congestion and delays at the backgate construction site.
