What great fun for Labor Day Weekend! Artisans from all over Texas will offer their arts, jewelry, pottery, and crafts for sale during the BluesFest. And blues artists will be playing all day! Festival runs all day, so bring a friend to wander around with. You can find the group at 3:30 and 5:30 checkpoints - see details below!
The $5 General Admission gets you live music from 2:30 - 10:30 PM. On Saturday that includes five bands! Josh Weathers Band plays at 5:30 so look for us on the lawn seating at the Main Stage area about that time.
PEOPLES CHOICE BBQ TASTING EVENT (3:30P)
The biggest request in 2010 was that festival goers wanted to try more BBQ. So this year the festival is featuring a Saturday afternoon People's Choice Event. Festival goers will be able to purchase tickets which will allow them to sample food and afterwards they will be able to vote for their favorite.
Saturday 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM you can purcahse 10 tickets for $10. Each ticket is good for one sample. For every group of tickets purchased, you'll also be given two poker chips. The poker chips will be given to the team you are voting for. The winning entries will be announced during the Awards Ceremony on Sunday. Find us in the BBQ area about 3:30 PM.
