On July 25, the Calaveras County Fairgrounds transform into a celebration of blues and BBQ. Attendees can set up lawn chairs and listen to various blues artists. As music fills the air, it mingles with the aromas of slow smoked pork, beef, and chicken. While listening to the bands, attendees can purchase tickets to sample BBQ and vote on the best from various vendors, who compete for prizes in the People’s Choice Event.

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.

The music was fantastic. I wish there had been more food choices from small local food trucks.
