In 2020, the Summertime Blues Festival celebrated its 10th anniversary. Over the past decade, the Festival has built a reputation for showcasing top international blues artists while gaining notoriety as one of the top blues festivals in North America.
Beautiful Maffeo Sutton Park on the Nanaimo waterfront is the perfect setting for the four-day festival. Summertime Blues brings together great music, a wide array of food selections, talented artisan exhibits and a host of interactive activities for the entire family. It makes for an amazing, high-energy community celebration.
For sponsors and local businesses, the Summertime Blues Festival offers a great opportunity to directly engage with the community, build brand loyalty and demonstrate your community support. You are invited to join the party and be a part of something truly special!
