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!
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Greeley Blues Jam has been postponed until 2021. Updates will continue to be posted on the festival website as they develop.
Downtown Greeley Pre-Festival Kickoff
On the Friday that the Blues Jam begins, you can check out the awesome kickoff in Downtown Greeley, where all of the music is free! Check out local restaurants and start getting pumped for the amazing festival itself! Performances start at 5 pm on the 9th St. Plaza, and you can catch a free shuttle from Island Grove to Downtown between 5 pm- 12 am to take you back and forth from the Kickoff to the campsites at the Festival itself.
The festival itself is a party with 11 hours of non-stop Blues and Blues-inspired music on two stages within the Island Grove Arena. In addition to non-stop jams, you can enjoy shopping, food, and events including a Craft Beer Sampling and a Whiskey and Cigar Tasting. Get excited for the Greeley Blues Jam, where it “ain’t nothin’ but a party!”.
Kids Blues 101 Stage
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!
Truly Unique Souvenirs
For those who want to feel a sense of true ownership of the Greeley Blues Jam, there is a very unique way to achieve this. The Blues Jam purchases 42,000 sq. ft. of sod to lay inside the Island Grove Arena where the event is held. This sod is then sold for $0.25/sq. ft. (minimum purchase amount is 400 sq. ft.), which is then loaded onto your trailer so you can bring it home! Talk about a unique souvenir!
Keep the party going uninterrupted by camping on-site at Island Grove Park! There are affordable tent and RV camp sites available so you can stay through the entire two-day festival without missing a thing! Your tickets will also allow you to exit and re-enter the arena so you can return to your campsite for meals or if you want to take a breather.
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.
