Bay Area Blues Festival coming to downtown Martinez!

Sep 10, 2014 10:41PM ● By Jennifer Neys
Sept. 27 & 28, 10am-6pm 
The Bay Area Blues Festival will take place along Main St. in Martinez on Saturday 9/27 and Sunday 9/28
The new Bay Area Blues Festival, the merger of two great festivals, the Downtown Martinez Italian Street Painting Festival and San Francisco’s Polk Street Blues Festival, will be held in Downtown Martinez (on Main Street between Court and Alhambra) from 10am to 6pm.
This free, two-day event will present continuous live blues performances on two stages, a merchant marketplace with arts, crafts and other items for sale, as well as gourmet food booths, local food vendors, hands on kids activities and rides, a Farmers’ Market, craft beer and fine wines, and of course street painting artists that will create impressive chalk art.
