When & Where
Baton Rouge Blues Festival
Free and open to the public, the 2015 Baton Rouge Blues Festival will be held on April 11 from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. in downtown Baton Rouge. Originating in 1981, the Baton Rouge Blues Festival is one of the oldest free blues festivals in America. Produced by the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation, the festival is made possible in part by the foundation board of directors, a volunteer Blues Festival Committee, partners and local support, as well as several generous sponsors. In order to keep the festival free, we appreciate your cooperation in supporting our vendors throughout the day and not bringing any outside food or drink. All revenue generated from the festival goes towards the mission of the Blues Foundation to help continue its goal to promote, preserve and celebrate the "Swamp Blues" music native to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
