The Western Maryland Blues Fest celebrates 23 years in 2018. We bring the best in national, regional, and local blues music right to downtown and jump-start the summer season. We invite you to partner with us to bring the best of the blues to Hagerstown advancing the economy, image, and quality of life in our city.  Together we support great music, a festive atmosphere, and a vibrant downtown! This season, we will showcase great music in a free Friday evening performance and a ticketed all-day event on Saturday — both in the Central Parking Lot. The lineup will be posted soon on our website!

Our audience members love great music, good food, and fun times.
