(Durand, WI) – The 10th Annual Blues On The Chippewa will be held in Memorial Park in Durand Wisconsin, Aug 4-6th 2017. This year, to celebrate 10 years, we will be running a second “local” stage in addition to an incredible lineup on the main stage. This year’s lineup includes: Jon Cleary, John Nemeth, Eric Lindell, Dave Keller Band, Erica Brown, Jimmy Nick & Don’t Tell Mama, Norman Jackson Band, Alex Wilson Band, Reverend Raven & West Side Andy, Tommy Bentz, Left Wing Bourbon with Sue Orfield, Harrison Street, Brian Naughton, Miss Myra & the Moonshakers, Joy Ann Parker, Blue Rooster, Three Feral Cats, Squishy Mud, Mark Cameron Band, Armadillo Jump and more. Blues brunch, Sunday All Star jam, and music in downtown venues Friday and Saturday nights, shuttle service available for a fee.
As usual the festival is free. Camping and overflow camping are available in Tarrant Park and at the Rolling Greens Driving range. Beer, water, soda and delicious food vendors are on site as well as a craft fair. There are no pets allowed in the park due to a city ordinance, small coolers are allowed in but not umbrellas, as it hinders view.
We ask for free-will donations and non-perishable food items for the Pepin County food pantry. A portion of the proceeds go to the food pantry, Brent Titus Music for Children Program, education scholarships, backpacks for kids, historical society, Senior Center and humane society among others.
