We've decided to keep ticket pricing the same as last year $10. We think this a terrific bargain for the quality of performers we're bringing in for this year's Fest. Blues all day 2:00 to 10:00 pm, two stages of quality musicians. Local acts, acoustic and solo/duo acts, regional and national touring acts. In addition to the music we'll have Food Trucks, Food Vendors and liquid refreshments. Free parking!
