Chesapeake Bay Events (CBE) held its first festival in 1998. It has quickly gained national notoriety as one of the premier Blues Festivals in the world. Past headliners have included James Brown, Bonnie Raitt, Aretha Franklin, Gregg Allman, John Lee Hooker, and many others.
Outside of providing top-caliber entertainment, the festival also gives all net proceeds to charity. In previous years Special Olympics of MD., Make A Wish of the Mid Atlantic, Camp Face a summer camp for kids with facial anomalies, Special Love’s Camp Fantastic for kids with life-threatening illnesses and We Care and Friends in Annapolis have all been beneficiaries. The festival has raised over one million dollars for charity over the years.
As with most festivals, sponsors are critical to success. This year Bud Light, Katcef Brothers Distributors, and Red Hot and Blue , who have sponsored for over 20 years, are back with the festival again. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Tickets are on sale now. Early bird General Admission one and two-day passes and VIP Packages are available while supplies last. Any tickets purchased in 2020 will be honored in 2022.
