Celebrate “30 years of Feeding the Human spirit”
with Waterfront Blues June 30 – July 4

Join blues legends, up-and-comers, and local acts to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, presented by First Tech Federal Credit Union, June 30 – July 4, 2017 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. This year’s festival will run five days and feature 150 blues acts on four stages. Festival proceeds help Oregon Food Bank fight hunger in Oregon and Clark County, Washington.

For just $10 a day, Waterfront Blues Festival is the concert deal of the summer,” explained Artistic Director Peter Dammann. “But it’s much more than that.

This has become one of the nation’s great community music festivals and it could only happen in Portland.”...
