The folks at Greeley Blues Jam are on a mission to preserve Blues music and connect with the community through this genre and other genres inspired by it. To that end, they’ve created a two-day festival held in Greeley, Colorado in early June that “ain’t nothin’ but a party!”.
This family-friendly experience will find you surrounded by great food, awesome music, and a unique atmosphere you can’t find anywhere else. The Greeley Blues Jam will occur from Friday to Saturday, May 31st to June 1st, 2024.
Downtown Greeley Pre-Festival Kickoff
On Friday, you can check out the awesome kickoff in downtown Greeley, where most of the music performances are free to watch. Check out local restaurants and start getting pumped for the main festival the following day.
Performances start in the evening on the 9th St. Plaza. You can catch a free shuttle from Island Grove to downtown, which will take you back and forth from the Kickoff to the campsites at the festival itself.
Non-Stop Blues & Events
The Blues Jam is essentially a party with 11 hours of Blues and Blues-inspired music on two stages within the Island Grove Regional Park. In addition to non-stop jams, you can enjoy shopping, food, and events including craft beer sampling and whiskey and cigar tasting.
This festival has something for all ages. Kids 12 and under are admitted to the festival for free, and the Blues 101 Stage was created with kids in mind. They’ll have a chance to learn about blues music and get a free harmonica!
Keep the party going uninterrupted by camping on-site at Island Grove Regional Park. There are affordable tent and RV campsites available so you can stay through the two-day festival without missing a thing. Your tickets will also allow you to exit and re-enter the rest of the festival so you can return to your campsite for meals or if you want to take a break.
This is also a fun option if you plan on attending the festival with friends or family; get a few campsites next to each other and party on! Camping is available both Friday and Saturday nights.
