Get ready to shake off those winter blues at the 29th annual Winter Blues Fest. The family-friendly affair features 20 performances over two days all under one roof at the downtown Marriott.

Each year, the lineup is completely fresh once a band plays Blues Fest, it can’t come back for another five years. This year’s lineup includes talent from around the world, including Toronzo Cannon, Carolyn Wonderland, Josh Hoyer and Soul Colossal, and Cash Box Kings. Amateur musicians can perfect their skills during piano and guitar workshops on Saturday afternoon.

Buy tickets in advance or at the door for a great weekend of blues.
