Riverfront Blues & Bar-B-Que Festival

Mark your calendar for Friday, August 5th through Sunday, August 7th when the 2016 Riverfront Blues Festival will bring the best of the blues to Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park.

This annual Wilmington tradition is a three-day, outdoor music festival held on the historic Wilmington riverfront. The festival has featured many memorable performances from notable blues artists like Koko Taylor, Pinetop Perkins and Elvin Bishop.
