Kitchener Blues Festival

The Kitchener Blues festival features some great artists playing outdoors the weekend of August 9th.

This year Saturday's headliner is Big Sugar, a blues-rock band with some radio hits you are sure to have heard.


Check out Diggin A Hole or Turn the lights on if you need to convince yourself this is worth seeing!

We will meet at Jack Burger Pub and leave by 9:15 to get a spot near the main stage.

The real fun starts once the outdoor concerts ends, 12 bars of blues features live acts in many of the venues in downtown Kitchener. We can hit a local bar, check out an act and then crawl to the next one.

    Tons of variety in the live music, with bands playing in every nook and cranny (like the Barristers Lounge). You never really know what you're going to find, just follow your ears.

    We are near the back of the crowd of the big sugar stage. Right by the nacho house! People are keeping a home base here while people explore the festival.

      Big Sugar and David Wilcox are the headliners for Saturday [which is all free]. They have a pretty good lineup this year [both the paid and free concerts!]
