Sorry about the flip-flop blues fans, but unfortunately the board and committee came to the difficult decision to “push pause” for this year’s festival. For our little non-profit organization, the costs outweighed the benefits. The mission of Festivals Fredonia, through Red, White & Blues, is to drive foot traffic to and through the community through interesting and fun programming. The virtual festival concept is simply not mission-focused enough. However, next year we will be celebrating the official 25th Anniversary of the Red, White & Blues Festival. We hope you will participate next year as we will be laser-focused on producing the largest Blues Fest in our regions history! Rock on and peace out! Catch you next year!
“STILL THE BEST STREET PARTY AROUND!”
Red, White & Blues, since 1995
We invite you to visit the Village of Fredonia during the Red, White and Blues Festival to get a taste of one of the best small towns in Western New York! Join us for this rocking 2 day music festival celebrating the local Red & White wine industry from the surrounding area and hear some awesome “BLUES” style music.
The 2020 R,W & B festivities start on Friday, September 11 and continues throughout the day on Saturday, September 12, 2020. On Saturday, September 12, Barker Common will be filled with various food vendors, wineries and TONS of craft and direct sell vendors!
Remember to pick up a commemorative t-shirt for the very low price of $15! NEW THIS YEAR: we will also have wine glasses ($5 each) and koozies ($2 each) available for purchase!
Pick up a drink card at any participating venue to enter the Three Chord Bourbon drink contest!
Visit our sponsors and venues for special beverage pricing. Drink contest cards will be available at all venues. Participants take the card to each venue, buy the special drink at the venue, have the card marked/validated that you purchased the drink, complete the card from every participating venue, fill in your name and phone number or email address, vote for your favorite drink and drop it off at any venue. You will be eligible for the drawing to win an official 2020 Red, White & Blues t-shirt! The venue that wins for the best drink will receive a trophy and bragging rights until next year’s festival!
Merchandise will be available at the Fredonia Beaver Club on Friday night and downtown in Barker Common on Saturday all day.
