August 24, 25 & 26, 2017
The countdown has started — this year’s Bean Blossom Blues Fest is almost here! Spend the evening under the stars with our star performers for 2017 — starting off with 2016 Best Blues Album Award winner Toronzo Cannon and 2016 Readers’ Poll Most Outstanding Harmonica Player Charlie Musselwhite.
Arrive early and get your weekend started. Don’t forget to bring your lawn chairs, blankets and coolers — we’ve got plenty of vendors for food and beverages, as well as great Bean merchandise.
The RV campground is getting close to capacity with plenty of tent camping still available. Call Bill Monroe Music Park and Campground to reserve the final remaining sites. If you’re not a camper stay at one of our host hotels or other local lodging options. Host hotels are are offering special discounted rates for the weekend — but hurry there are just a few rooms left! The Bean is offering free hotel shuttle service all weekend to the fest and back, as well as free shuttles in and around the Fest. Check out our “Where to Stay” page for complete details.
But we love our fans so of course you can still get tickets at the gate. Thursday night admittance is included in your weekend ticket, no single tickets will be available for the Thursday night jam.
ALERT! All Blues Fest fans....(especially campers) are urged to avoid entering the Official Bean Blossom and Bill Monroe Music Park from the north. There are two bridges that are out between Morgantown and Bean Blossom. The local routes ARE NOT RV friendly. Pretty much anything larger than a VW Beetle will have a rough time on the local detour!
Fans should go through Columbus or Bloomington, but DO NOT attempt to enter from the north. See our Directions page to enter through Columbus, IN. Thank you! Please let us know if you have any questions.
