Oroville, Washington’s Rally at the Border Blues Fest will take place Friday and Saturday, August 25 and 26. The 2017 festival marks the city’s fourth year of attracting music lovers from around the region and beyond to enjoy blues music performed by multiple bands. Music will be performed at indoor venues both Friday and Saturday evenings in addition to the Saturday main stage event outdoors at the city’s Deep Bay Park on the shores of beautiful Lake Osoyoos between noon and 10 PM.
