Among the nearly dozen blues festivals happening this weekend are the Canal Winchester Blues and Ribfest in Canal Winchester, Ohio, the Fargo Blues Festival in Fargo, North Dakota, and the Prairie Dog Blues Festival in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, all held July 26-27.

The Canal Winchester Blues and Ribfest is a two-day summer street celebration in historic downtown Canal Winchester featuring live blues music, world-class ribs, a wide variety of quality non-rib food options, children’s activities, fan-cooled dining areas, and a beer & wine garden for our blues/rib-loving guests 21 and over. The 2019 artists include Tommy Castro, Dana Fuchs, and Chris Cain.

The Fargo Blues Festival features a 2-day, 12-band blues explosion that features world-class bands, great food, and plenty of ice-cold brews. The festival will be held on the grass of Newman Outdoor Field, a 1st class baseball stadium. Camping is within walking distance. Performers on Friday include the Eric Gales Band, Popa Chubby, Rick Estrin & The Nightcats, and on Saturday they include Sonny Landreth, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, and Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials among others.

The Prairie Dog Blues Festival is held every year on historic St. Feriole Island, right on the Mississippi River. Headliners for their 22nd Anniversary include Anthony Gomes, Nikki Hill, Toronzo Cannon, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Tas Cru, and Eliza Neals. There are also some hard choices to be made at The Prairie Dog! You can either get up out of your chair, stretch and walk a few yards to the beer tent or you can have one of our lovely Prairie Dog Beer ladies bring your drink to you! Decisions, decisions!

Lots of decisions on the Summer weekend. Check our Blues Festival Guide website for details on more festivals, links and more.
