2014 Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival Canceled

Posted: November 21, 2013

The Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival has canceled the 2014 festival along with the 2014 Southern Maryland Blues Festival which made its debut this past September. The organizers have said they hope to be back in action in 2015.

Here’s this from their Facebook page:

“Chesapeake Bay Events announced today that the Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival and the Southern Maryland Blues Festival will not be held in 2014. Both festivals are planned to resume in 2015. Look for the announcement of the dates. As much as we love doing these festivals, the cancelation was unavoidable.

Since the charities that we support rely on these festivals, we ask that you help them out in 2014 by making a donation either directly to them or to Chesapeake Bay Events on their behalf. The charities are We Care and Friends (, providing help to those in need in the city of Annapolis, Special Love, Inc. ( which operates a camp for kids with cancer and other life threatening illnesses and Camp Face ( which operates a summer Camp for kids with facial differences.”

The Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival has raised over $900,000 for charities since 1998.
