Riverfront Blues Festival


The Riverfront Blues Festival is a three-day, outdoor music festival held on the Wilmington waterfront. The longstanding blues festival has featured memorable performances from notable blues artists like Koko Taylor, Pinetop Perkins and Elvin Bishop.

The Blues Festival always brings energy and excitement to the Riverfront and like our other cultural activities, serves as a way to bring visitors to Wilmington and showcase all our city has to offer.

Blues Festival attendees are able to purchase a single day pass or three-day weekend pass. On Friday, the single day pass costs $25 online or $30 at the gate. On both Saturday and Sunday, the single day pass costs $30 online and $35 at the gate. The three-day weekend Blues Festival pass costs $75 and can only be purchased online.

More details on the 2018 Riverfront Blues Festival are upcoming.
