Giving Hunger the Blues is proud to present a full day of local, regional and national music on two stages and a selection of the area's most delicious restaurants and food vendors and retail businesses.

LIVE MUSIC is always the main attraction at Giving Hunger the Blues, which always brings phenomenal talent to please the always happy crowd. Previous artists over the years include names such as AC/DC's Brian Johnson, The Allman Brothers Band's Dan Toler, and Rick Derringer, just to name a few.

Our mission is to feed, protect and nurture the kids in our community by providing meals to families in need, especially during the holiday season. Established by the Generoso Foundation in 1996, Giving Hunger the Blues has generated more than $1.6 million with all proceeds of this providing meals for needy families especially during the holiday season.
