Back To The Blues
From June 1 - 4, 2023, The Eureka Springs Blues Party showcases some of the best blues music this side of Beale Street.
Blues festival weekends are not uncommon to Eureka Springs as many locals will tell you. The stories about the times when the streets and venues were akin to the sounds that one might hear in the French Quarter in New Orleans or back on Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee and just like in years past, this newly developed (and soon-to-be-famous) Blues Party features an impressive lineup of musicians.
Support this newly developed Blues Party and let's get Eureka Springs back to the blues.
“We are thrilled to bring the Blues back to Eureka Springs,” said festival organizer Mary Howze. “This festival celebrates the rich history and diversity of the blues, rock, and funk genres, and we’re excited to showcase top talent from across the region.”
