It is never too early to make plans, especially when it comes to one of the most entertaining weekends Old Town has to offer in the fall. Old Town BluesFest 2012 will be held the weekend of September 21-22 this year.
The festival that started off in 1994 and was originally named OctoberFest. The festival has been an annual celebration since then. By 2003 the festival was becoming more popular, ditched their original name for ‘BluesFest’, and gained enough attention to be sponsored by local radio stations and companies.
A festival which started with bringing in crowds of a couple thousand guests now provides entertainment for up to ten thousand people plus each year.
BluesFest is not solely intended for any specific age fan of blues music. At the festival you’ll be able to find a “Kidz Beat” tent along with a “beverage tent” providing options and fun for all ages.
Even if you are not a die-hard fan of blues music, the festival provides a positive atmosphere in Old Town. The two day event offers not only blues entertainment but great food, vendors, artwork, nightlife and an Old Town experience fit for anyone.
It’s never too early to save the date for an event as intriguing as BluesFest. The festival is a free two day event featuring entertainment performed by national, regional and local artists. The best part about this festival of fun and blues is that it is hosted in Old Town.
