Welcome Back!
We are so glad you're here and ready to celebrate summer and good vibes with us!
The 2023 Blues & Blues Festival is going to be better than ever!


Event Overview

FRIDAY, July 14, is the family-friendly pre-party featuring a free Kidzone, dancing, and live music from local favorite, The Big Jangle, a Tom Petty tribute band. Food and single-pours of beer and wine are available for purchase.

SATURDAY, July 15, is the main festival with a line-up of talented musicians including Jr. De Ville Blues Band, The Daniel Castro Band and headliner band, Top Shelf. The main festival also features the area's best craft brew tasting, delicious food and craft vendors!

The Blues & Brews Festival event is FREE to the public. This means you do not need to purchase a ticket to attend the festival itself and enjoy the live music at the Friday pre-party or the main event festival on Saturday. The park is open to all.

Ticket purchases ARE REQUIRED for access to the craft beer garden on Saturday and for single pours of beer & wine on both days. No outside alcohol is allowed at the event.

Craft Brew Tasting Tickets


Advanced Ticket Purchase = Discounted Ticket Price + Express Check-In at Event
Once tickets go on sale, we strongly encourage you to purchase your craft brew tasting tickets in advance. The lines are anticipated to be longer this first year back after the pandemic and day-of ticket sales may be limited due to tent max capacity. Advance ticket purchases are discounted (even with fees) and advanced ticketholders will go directly to the Express Check-In line. Less time in line means more time to enjoy tasting the epic brews!  

Our entire staff has the pedal to the metal, working to make the 12th Annual Blues & Brews Festival the best event yet. We appreciate your patience as we fly forward with our plans. Let's goooooo!
