The Waterfront Blues Festival is an annual event in Portland, Oregon, featuring four days of performances by blues musicians. The festival began in 1987 as the Rose City Blues Festival – a concert to support the local homeless population, sponsored by the Cascade Blues Association. Performers included John Lee Hooker, the Paul deLay Band, Curtis Salgado, Norman Sylvester Blues Band, and Lloyd Jones Struggle.

Over 3 decades, the festival has steadily grown and is now recognized as one of the world’s premier blues festivals. Since 1988, the festival has raised more than $10 million and over 1,000 tons of food to support those facing hunger.


Four days, four stages, all the blues.
