About the Festival


To build upon the original tradition of the festival, and to show support for the community, the Old Town Business Association created a non-profit 501 C3; The Robert “Ted” Brown Foundation – 501 (C3) #82-0956108, which donated over $2,000 to the Tacoma School District K-12 music program in 2017 and 2018. 

In our first year we were honored to be nominated for a Best of Blues Award from the Washington Blues Association!


Blues ON is honored to receive a Keeping the Blues Alive award from the South Sound Blues Association in 2018!
