Keeping the Blues Alive
We offer a family oriented atmosphere where everyone can expect a wonderful Blues experience. Great food and drink, merchandise vendors, ample free parking, plus camping & RV sites available just outside the Island Grove Arena.
Expect lots of food vendors on site or pack a picnic lunch, leave it in your car, and you can come and go from the arena and enjoy the park. Ticket holders will be stamped and allowed to re-enter at any time. Don’t forget to bring your picture I.D.
Plan on visiting the intimate Blues 101 Stage sponsored by the Colorado Blues Society. Here kids of all ages have the opportunity to learn about the music which is part of our national heritage and the foundation for most of our popular music. See and meet some of the most talented young blues performers from Colorado and around the country. Get here early (gates open 11:00am) and the Party continues until 10 pm.
Don’t miss the Friday pre-festival activities in Historic Downtown Greeley. The music starts at 5:00 PM on the 9th Street Plaza. The headliner this year, Johnny Sansone, is sure to get you ready for the rest of the evening where you can listen to live Blues in over 16 Bars and restaurants. This is as close to Beale Street outside of Memphis.
It all adds up to two amazing days of non-stop Blues… always remember our goal and motto: “Ain’t Nothin’ But a Party”
