Blues and Seafood Festival

165 Howerton Avenue
Ilwaco, WA 98624

The 2013 line up is the best we have ever had. This year we are bringing you some huge blues talent. The Robin Gibson Band will open up the festival on Friday night followed by the North Coast Blues Band and our famous All Star Jam with the Heartbreakers, featuring a terrific line up of the Northwest's premier female blues singers.

Saturday night kicks off with Kevin Selfe & the Tornadoes. Kevin may be new to us, but he is certainly not new to the Blues. In fact, he's a Muddy Award Hall of Famer. He'll be followed by The Strange Tones, who will be bringing the Volcano Vixens along to help blow the roof off. The original NW Boogie Cat, Norman Sylvester, is back by popular demand and promises to have everyone up & dancing. Finally, we are thrilled to present this year's headliner, one of the world's greatest blues artist, Coco Montoya. This is a show you just can't miss.

The Food Court is expanding as well, with lots more delights from Peninsula Seafood providers. And, of course, there will be Micro Brews, Regional Wines and BBQed Oysters from Willapa Bay.

Once again, we are working with our friends at Jazz & Oysters on Sunday August 18th, just up the road in beautiful and historic Nahcotta.  An incredible bargain for two days of outstanding music and fun!
