June 3rd – 6th. Sunday is the free day in the city park!
Held on the first weekend following Memorial Day, the Western Maryland Blues Fest serves up an annual community celebration centered around one of America’s most enduring musical forms-the blues.
Set amidst raw-boned guitar riffs and emotionally charged vocals, the Blues Fest represents a unique “home-grown” partnership between public and private concerns. Conceptually conceived in 1995, and annually hosted by the City of Hagerstown, the Western Maryland Blues Fest has mushroomed into a critically acclaimed blues event in the mid-Atlantic region since its modest inception in 1996.
