CHICAGO BLUES FESTIVAL PREVIEW EVENTS

Back to Previous Page

As if three days of free music on four stages isn't enough, May and June are both designated blues month in Chicago! From the neighborhoods to downtown, a series of Chicago Blues Festival pre-event concerts will be playing the blues at the Chicago Cultural Center, public libraries and more.

And the highlight leading up to the main event is the Chicago Blues Festival Preview in Daley Plaza on Monday, June 6. The free lunchtime preview performance will feature Theo Huff at 12:00 pm.

*All events are free and open to the public, no tickets are required; schedule is subject to change
