About Cincy Blues Fest
Celebrating two decades of success, Cincy Blues Fest continues to draw fans and families to Cincinnati’s riverfront for music, food, fun, and the best names in the blues. Cincy Blues Fest is an all-volunteer run event produced by the Cincy Blues Society.
At the center of the Cincy Blues Fest sits the Main Stage, which provides a grand venue for amazing national blues acts, as well as the first-place winners of this year’s Cincy Blues Challenge. You’ll also want to watch the Main Stage for the Blues in the Schools (BITS) band — come and support the next generation of blues masters!
Arches Boogie Piano Stage
Once again, an impressive number of international, national, and local boogie woogie pianists will grace the stage under Saywer Point’s arches on Saturday. This once-a-year gathering is a treat for fans and performers alike, especially when the artists gather on stage for the grand finale jam at the end of the evening. You never know who’ll you see sitting side-by-side at the keys!
If you’re looking to hear some of the best home-grown blues the tri-state has to offer, head to the Local Stage! Many of the performers have won or placed highly in local, regional, and even national competitions. Come to see your favorite local bands — and discover some you may have not seen before — all in one place on Friday and Saturday.
