We spent $20 per person on food/drink tickets, which is how you pay for the barbecue and other food items. The idea is to sample from several BBQ vendors and then vote for your favorite. It's worth bringing a camp chair or lawn chair to relax as you enjoy the blues music. Sunscreen is a must, and so is a hat.

Good music but not very many people heard about it. Need more advertising.

We've been to many, many, Blues Festivals over the last 30 years. This was the best. The people were all so friendly, there weren't long lines, the line up was fabulous , the food was great, the weather wasn't too hot, parking was good, there was plenty of shade, there was nothing to "not like!" Thank you for a festival well thought out ...keep it up please!!

Concerts, like dimly lit chandeliers, are more impressive outdoors and are more enchanting when adorned with strategically placed glow sticks.

About Blues and Bones Festival

The blues can spawn from many different things. A life full of regrets. A failed relationship with a former sweetheart. A favorite Cheers episode interrupted by the Public Broadcasting System. With the blues, there's always a story in between the notes of every chord progression. At some point, however, all of that melancholy comes full circle, and the music transforms into a raucous celebration of life. That's certainly the case at the Blues and Bones Festival, where crowds gather to hear regional blues artists, from soulful singers to lightening-fast guitarists, share their euphonious stories to cheering crowds.

Though the expressive performances of these artists certainly shake attendees right down to their bones, the "bones" in the event title actually refers to the remnants of slow-smoked barbecue. In addition to the music, the outdoor festival culls a melange of food vendors who add their own signature seasonings to pork, chicken, and beef.
