Jan. 27 to Feb. 4, 2017
Get your Blues on! The Ferndale Metro Blues Festival has been a hugely popular and wildly successful event. In fact, it was an official sanctioned event of Super Bowl XL in 2006. The Ferndale Metro Blues Festival averages more than 60 concerts held over nine days at two dozen locations in the region.
Blues Festival History
In 2001, a group of volunteers got together in Ferndale Michigan to organize a city-wide Blues Festival to raise money for charity. Clubs, restaurants, and bars in downtown Ferndale were invited to host live blues concerts during a weekend in January 2002, donating cover charges and raising funds through raffles and sponsorships.
The Blues Festival Has Raised Over $20,000 For Local Charities
Tens of thousands of persons attend our various concerts and events and hundreds of thousands of persons are exposed to our media coverage and promotional materials.
The Blues and Music Festival wouldn't be able to go on without support from our beloved volunteers. Hats off to our hard working volunteers we have every year! Buy some volunteers a drink or two if you see them!
For the entire length of the festival, come out and enjoy the music from various artists and bands! See the schedule for details on when and where certain bands and musicians are playing!
