As a rite of spring in Landenberg, the annual Brandywine Backyard BBQ Festival on April 23 drew hundreds of barbecue and music lovers to New Garden Township Park for a full day of fun and festivities.

The event – supported by several area businesses and agencies including presenting sponsor Constellation – featured music by The Late Ambitions and Ol’ 442, a variety of barbecue from a number of food trucks, as well as desserts, beer from Braeloch Brewing Company and wine from the Harvest Ridge Winery.

The Brandywine Backyard BBQ Festival supports scouting for area youth through the Friends of Scouting Program. Specifically, this fun family event and community fundraiser benefits Scouts in the Kennett Consolidated, Unionville-Chadds Ford, Avon Grove, Octorara, Oxford and Cecil County School Districts, providing opportunities for scouting’s many benefits such as character development, leadership training, camping facilities including Horseshoe Scout Reservation, and fun throughout the year.
