Baton Rouge Blues Festival




This free, family-friendly festival, produced by the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation in conjunction with the Manship Theatre, will be held on April 11, 2015 in downtown Baton Rouge in Repentance Park and Glavez Plaza. 


The 2014 Baton Rouge Blues Fest featured blues legends and newcomers which included Dr. John & The Nite Trippers, Kenny Neal with Henry Gray, Black Joe Lewis, Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens, Little Freddie King, Johnny Sansone, Black Pistol Fire, Chris LeBlanc, Jeffery Broussard & the Creole Cowboys, Brother Dege, and Baton Rouge Music Studios.

During your visit, plan to visit popular Baton Rouge blues-hangouts like Phil Brady’s (with the longest-running 22-year Thursday night blues jam around) and the one-of-a-kind Teddy’s Juke Joint in Zachary, Louisiana. Local high school blues bands traditionally perform, often rivaling the festival’s main stage in fan popularity.

Come dance the weekend away in Baton Rouge and stay in one of our hotels or bed and breakfast inns.
