What will the 2022 Festival format be?

We’re thrilled to be returning to the gorgeous Tom McCall Waterfront Park for the 2022 Waterfront Blues Festival. The 2022 festival format will be similar to 2019 with four stages, taking over 8 acres of the park with plenty of room to roam and enjoy the music. We’ll also have some exciting changes like more VIP areas and opportunities, an expanded family area, curated food and beverage experiences with some of Portland’s favorite restaurants and craft beverages. And oh yeah, the dance floor will be back!

What will your Health & Safety protocols be?

We take the health of our team, our artists and our guests very seriously and are constantly monitoring local and state guidelines. We will have an update on our health and safety protocols in March when our early bird tickets go on sale and we’ll continue to update our fans on any changes leading up to the festival. Thanks in advance for helping us keep our community safe.
