26th Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival
Tom McCall Waterfront Park July 4-7, 2013
Another fantastic year at Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival. This year's goal was 1 million dollars and blues fans came through once again, not only reaching that goal, but surpassing it by nearly one third. An impressive $1,315,000.00 was collected for Oregon Food bank and over 100,000 pounds of food. One hundred percent of proceeds collected at the gate go to Oregon Food Bank.
Crowds were at capacity and the weather remained beautiful all four days as blues fans packed the waterfront to hear this year's line-up featuring such greats as, Taj Mahal, Mavis Staples, Eric Burdon & the Animals, and closing out the festival, Robert Plant, lead singer of the legendary Led Zeppelin.
A nice addition this year was the Blues Fest app. With a map, performance schedules, artist info, ticket purchase info, news, weather info and much more, it has all the information you need about the festival, before, during and after.
