Blues Festival

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 in downtown Baton Rouge at the Baton Rouge River Center.

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.
