Blues Festival Friends:
It’s that time again!!! Planning for our 30thth Annual Blues Festival has commenced. Your financial support in the past has allowed us to bring quality artists and music since 1991. We’d like to ask you to support our efforts once again. As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily upon your generous sponsorships and donations. We hope that you will continue to partner with us on our mission to “Keep the Blues Alive”.
We are been working with various agencies to select the performers for this year’s festival, and will announce our lineup soon. We offer a variety of perfromers with international, national, regional and local appeal.
Please check our website (www.riverfrontbluesfest.org) for announcements regarding upcoming events, and also follow us on FaceBook. We have been having a monthly Blues Jam, held on the last Thursday of each month, presented at RLandry’s Cajun Restaurant in downtown Fort Smith. Check us on FaceBook for the next one, or Gary Hutchison on his FaceBook page.
Riverfront Blues Festival, Ltd. Believes in being good citizens in our community, and take pride in giving back to the City of Fort Smith.
We help support an Educational Endowment (Barry Ratliff Memorial Scholarship) which awards a $1000.00 college scholarship to two students each year who are pursuing an education in music.
With assistance from Stephens Production Company and Arkansas Oklahoma Gas Company, we conduct our Blues in the Schools Programs which has introduced thousands of local schoolchildren to the American style of music known as the Blues!
Again this year we are assisting the Fort Smith Boys and Girls Clubs in their music program, where they are providing musical instruments and instructions to members of the clubs
We wish to personally invite all of our Sponsors and Friends to come out and attend the 30th Annual Riverfront Blues Festival. The dates will be June 19 and 20. It will be a great two days, guaranteed!! Thank you in advance for your continued support in our efforts to continue making our festival “The Best Little Blues Festival in America”.
