After much deliberation, we are announcing the cancellation of the 2016 Northwoods Blues Festival June 24th and 25th in Spooner WI. This hard decision was made after the surprising retirement of Jack Hemming and Lenny Anderson; our President and Volunteer Coordinator. We want to thank both Jack and Lenny for their years of unselfish and dedicated service to the success of the four Northwoods Blues Festivals. Without them, these events would not have happened.
We are please and excited to announce that we are will be having The Northwoods Blues Festival 2017 in a new and better venue. Scheduled for June 23 and June 24, 2017 The Northwoods Blues Festival will take place at the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds in Chippewa Falls. The benefits of this change are enormous. This location affords access to a larger population base to support our event. It also offers better lodging and camping oppurtunities for our patrons. We feel this venue gives our patrons better parking, refreshment access,seating comfort and affords us the opportunity to grow our event.
We hope to see all our fans and friends we have developed thoughout this four years of festivals at our 2017 event. We already have some very exciting band comittments for 2017 and will continue to offer that high level of blues entertainment you have come to expect from The Northwoods Blues Festival.
See you in Chippewa Falls in June 2017.
