Announcing the 2022 Mid-Winter Blues Festival!
Mark your calendars for March 3-5 as our festival returns with three nights and one afternoon of blues!
It’s been a long couple of years since we last hosted our festival, and we’re hoping you’re ready for some live blues. We’re scaling back our festival for 2022 by using smaller venues and limiting our overall capacity, but you can count on satisfying your thirst for live music and enjoying an eclectic lineup each night.
We’re returning to our roots of our early festivals when we used smaller venues and some of the best local and regional bands from across the Prairies. This is purposeful to avoid bringing performers across international border crossings and/or needing extensive air travel, as well as being prepared for last-minute venue capacity restrictions. We’ll also be limiting the amount of local venue partners for free shows on the afternoon of Saturday March 5. More to come on that front in the upcoming weeks.
We’ve also created a 3-night ticket, with a savings of $20 off of the combined three separate night tickets. Click here for more ticket information: https://reginabluesassoc.simpletix.ca/
Lastly, the serious stuff: The festival venues will be adhering to all rules, regulations and restrictions in place due to Covid. This includes proof of vaccination to enter all of our venues. As well, we kindly ask all audience members to keep their masks on during the performances and when walking about the venues. Masks are able to be removed momentarily while eating or drinking.
Please be respectful of the restrictions and expectations put in place due to Covid so that we don’t hamper our festival from being able to utilize these venues for future events. We also don’t want to put our volunteers into a position of having to police our audience members regarding mask usage. If you enter our festival, please be courteous and understanding of the rules of the venue and of the province, and do not take out any frustrations on our volunteer organizers and staff. We’re all here to celebrate the return of our festival, so lets have a relaxing good time.
Hope to see you at the festival and supporting live blues!!
