Waterfront Blues Festival July 2-5, 2021

Waterfront Blues Festival July 2-5, 2021

It’s getting closer!

With safety at the forefront of planning, the festival is moving less than a mile “Upriver” to The Lot at Zidell Yards, Portland’s premier socially-distanced, outdoor performance venue, located in the South Waterfront neighborhood. Each day of the festival will include two separately ticketed shows, featuring several performances from amazing local, regional and national artists.

Tickets go on sale June 1 at 10 AM!  

Tickets for each show will be $75 GA & $100 VIP per person, with seating pods sold as 2, 4, and 6-person groups. Seating pods will be clearly marked and socially-distanced with at least 6 feet between each pod. Each pod will come furnished with chairs and a side table. Your pod will become your festival home where you are free to dance, sip on a cold beverage, and enjoy the music.

Each day of the festival will include two separately ticketed shows — an Afternoon Show from 12-4 PM and an Evening Show from 6-10 PM. There are no multi-day passes available this year.

If you have additional questions, please call Ticket Tomato at 1-800-820-9884 between 10 AM – 5 PM PST, Monday through Friday.
