SEE YOU 2021
Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival rescheduled to 2021
When we cancelled the 2020 Winthrop R&B Festival, we offered our ticket buyers two options — a full refund, or the opportunity to donate all or part of their ticket purchase to the Festival. The response has been overwhelmingly generous, not that we are surprised! Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival has weathered many hardships over its 33 years—wicked winds, raging wildfires— and some of those challenges nearly sank the event. But thanks to our attendees and our dedicated Winthrop team and partners, the Festival not only survived, but grew stronger, became financially sustainable, and thrived as the largest and longest-running blues festival in Washington.
Our deepest gratitude to all who donated (listed below). Because of YOU we were able to provide ‘blues stimulus’ grants to all artists booked this year as well as provide funding to The Cove Food Bank. YOU ARE AMAZING!
33RD ANNUAL WINTHROP RHYTHM & BLUES FESTIVAL
Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival
Located at the Blues Ranch on the Methow River in the resort town of Winthrop, Washington, the Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival is a three-day event packed full of exciting national and regional entertainment for all ages. There is on-site camping, food and craft vendors, portable showers, and a beer garden. The Blues Ranch is the perfect setting for one of Washington’s finest music festivals. We look forward to another great year and hope to see YOU at the 33rd Annual Winthrop Rhythm and Blues Festival!!
