SMOKIN' BLUES FEST 8
"A Beacon of East Coast Blues'
Nova Scotia's Longest-Running Blues Festival
July 6-7th, 2018
Hants County Exhibition Grounds, Windsor, NS

Well folks, we're at year eight and there's no looking back. Our eight year will be the best lineup yet, with the best lineup of vendors, the best lineup of sponsors and the BEST BLUES FEST TICKET PRICES IN THE MARITIMES. Our focus this year os to showcase the rising stars of the East Coast blues and blues rock scene. We'll also have some Maritime legends and veterans to create a nice balance. We are trying to make this festival the least of the same-old-same-old and stand out a bit. 

We offer on-site camping, as well as serviced sites (VERY limited supply and they always sell out) and a "Kids 12 & Under FREE" policy. FREE PARKING as well.
