About the festival

The 8th Annual Oxford Blues Festival to be held this summer on July 14, 15 & 16, 2017 in Oxford, MS and in University, MS.

The mission of the Oxford Blues Festival is to preserve, protect and promote blues music and culture. This is achieved through education in school programs, community events and workshops culminating with the production of an outdoor festival uniting our diverse citizenry in a celebration of American blues-based music. The Oxford, MS based festival entertains while educating on the role of the blues in the development of popular music in the United States and around the world.

Again, as last summer we promise to deliver an outstanding festival. Stay tuned for specific details coming soon!
