Blues in the Clubs

Blues in the Clubs is perhaps the signature experience of the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. On Friday and Saturday night of festival week, the artist faculty head to numerous venues in Port Townsend’s historic downtown and uptown districts to play sets in all sorts of interesting combinations.

One wristband each night gives you access to all venues, and an amazing variety of musicians. Please read our Wristband Policies.

Blues in the Clubs: August 4-5, 2017

Friday and Saturday Night – 8pm-midnight
Admission: $25 wristband – all access

Blues in the Clubs is a moveable feast of great music in various downtown venues, with each venue operating on a first-come, first-seated basis. Your wristband is an all access pass, and we encourage you to move around throughout the evening to gain the full benefit of the clubs experience. Venue hosts will help direct you to available seating or standing room options.
