July 3rd-8th, 2013
More than a blues exchange; it’s a blues experience
Join us as we celebrate the 26th annual Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival – the largest outdoor Blues music festival in the U.S. – and help us reach our goal of raising $20,000 to support the Oregon Food Bank.
Portland Blues Experience (PBEx) collaborates with the Waterfront Blues Festival to offer five days and nights of dancing to over 100 live bands and your favorite DJ’s, as well as two DME Dance Cruises down the Willamette River.
In addition, the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival is proud to include ‘Dance Kids’ the family friendly addition to the multitude of fantastic booths in the Louisiana Pavilion. The Louisiana Pavilion is located opposite the Oregonian Front Porch Stage (north of the Hawthorne Bridge). You will also find information on local dance organizations at our ‘Will Dance For Food’ booth, also located in the Louisiana Pavilion.
These events, along with all the amazing dancing and excursions that you have come to know and love promise to make 2013 the most insipring and eventful Portland Blues Experience yet.
To stay up to date, please visit us on our facebook group page and on twitter @PBExInfo. We will be updating both with the latest information on excursion, bands, dances and other events throughout the festival.
