Celebrating 30 Years: Erie's Blues & Jazz Festival 2022

August 5th - 7th, 2022

We cannot wait to see you all again at the 30th Annual Erie's Blues & Jazz Festival in Frontier Park! This year, we are back the first weekend in August! The festival will be held from August 5th - 7th, 2022. Festivities open Friday night with a limited performance line-up/food vendor list while we set up for the weekend. Saturday is dedicated to bans who play the Blues, while Sunday features Jazz Performances. We pride our festival for providing local artists with a place to share and demonstrate their work. Demonstrating artists will be located throughout the park for the weekend. 

Whether you've attended all 30 years of the festival or you're just dipping your toe in, we can't wait to see you this summer in Frontier Park!
