Get your tickets for the 24th Annual Prairie Dog Blues Festival
(PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, WI) – Get your tickets for the 24th Annual Prairie Dog Blues Festival, happening in Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin July 28-30. The Prairie Dog is one of the most laid-back blues festivals out there! It is held every year on historic St. Feriole Island in a beautiful city park, right on the Mississippi River and nestled between jagged cliffs and green hills untouched by the Ice Age! Once you get that cold drink in your hand, great tunes in your ear and good, friendly people all around, you’ll realize you’re at one of the most beautiful venues anywhere and will soon be calling yourself a Prairie Dogger!

This year’s festival features: The Ghost Town Blues Band, Katie Henry, Jimmy Nick & Don’t Tell Mama, Joanna Connor, The Steepwater Band, Left Wing Bourbon, Dirty Red & The Soul Shakers, Mama’s Worry, Avey Grouws, Eddie Turner, Veronica Lewis, Gabe Stillman, and Caleb Johnson (Winner of American Idol).

Tickets and camping are available here. Information on accommodations can be found here or by calling 800-732-1673. Like their Facebook page and watch to win free tickets to the Fest!

Camp on site and walk to the gate of the festival only 200-300 yards. Food and drink, campfires, singing, playing music and telling stories is strongly encouraged. A 1-block walk off The Island and you’re downtown surrounded by family-owned pubs, restaurants and small retail stores. Most pubs this year will have bands as well. If a motel is more your style, blues fest shuttles will get you to the fest in 5-minutes or less!

New for 2022 is a free Thursday night Kick-Off Party! The party starts at 5pm hosted by The Ghost Town Blues Band. Music 6:30-10:30pm on the tent stage. Camp free Thursday night although no carry-ins of food or drink. Food and non-food vendors will be set-up by 5pm.
