Northwoods Blues Festival CANCELLED for June 19th and 20th, 2020 w/ Date Reset to 2021

Thursday, April 16, 2020
Official Announcement


We have been told by many people that our 2020 Northwoods Blues Festival lineup was one of the best in the entire country. We agree!

We are now faced with the social distancing challenges of Covid 19 and want every one of our great blues fans to remain safe and healthy. After consulting with our local Health Department, we have decided to postpone/cancel/delay/defer (you pick the word) the 2020 Northwoods Blues Festival scheduled for June 19th and 20th, 2020.

We have rescheduled the next Northwoods Blues Festival for June 18 and 19, 2021 at Riverfront Park in Chippewa Falls. We asked each of our artists scheduled for NWBF 2020 and every one of them opted for a “rollover” to appear at the Northwoods Blues Festival 2021.

They are Friday June 18: Side Stage Stephan Cooper & Nobody Famous, Main Stage Howard “Guitar” Luedtke, Ivy Ford, Cash Box Kings and Curtis Salgado. Saturday June 19: Side Stage Harrison Street, Main Stage Mark Cameron Band, PK Mayo, The Ghost Town Blues Band, Toronzo Cannon and Southern Hospitality.

We understand plans can change (ours sure have) and we will refund any ticket requests. A non refunded ticket purchased for NWBF 2020 will automatically be good for NWBF June 18 and 19, 2021. All ticket purchase funds have been paid to Artists as deposits and we have not asked Artists for refunds of those deposits. We have rolled those deposits over for NWBF 2021. Our Artists are having financial stresses and need our support.

We hope you consider rolling your ticket purchase over to NWBF 2021, for what promises to be our best festival yet. We understand if you choose to receive a refund and appreciate your understanding and support. We will now be selling tickets for June 18 and 19, 2021 on our website.

Each existing ticket buyer will receive an email through our ticket purchase site asking if they choose to rollover their purchase to NWBF 2021 or receive a refund."
