(Nescopeck, PA) – The Briggs Farm Blues Festival celebrates 20 years on July 6-9. This year’s performers include Devon Allman, Eric Gales, Thornetta Davis, Joanna Conner, Slam Allen, Lonnie Shields, Vanessa Collier and Alex P. Suter and more.
Since 1998, Briggs Farm has hosted one of the nation’s most revered blues festivals on its 250 year-old farm. Through the years they have grown in size, but have maintained a small festival feel. For their dedication to the Blues, they were awarded a 2017 Blues Foundation’s “Keeping the Blues Alive” Award. This honor is given to one festival each year, and they’re ecstatic that this year it went to Briggs! Their goal has always been to bring the best Blues music possible to their area. Keeping the music we love so much alive and thriving is easy to do with the support of passionate guests, and amazing musicians who come year after year!
There are varied ticket options, some that include camping plus premium reserved camp sites. They say camping at Briggs Farm is the best way to enjoy your summer. “The Best Weekend of the Year” lives up to its name by offering easy access campgrounds, with 3 different areas to find your weekend home. There’s 2 different Camping Woods areas and the Camping Field where rows of RV’s set up for a weekend on The Farm.
