Chicago Blues Festival

Students attending Chicago Blues Camp have the option to join us at the Chicago Blues Festival, the largest free Blues festival in the world and Chicago’s largest music festival. During three days on five stages hundreds of blues musicians and more than 500,000 blues fans prove that Chicago is the "Blues Capital of the World."

Come see why they call it “Sweet Home Chicago”. The Chicago Blues Festival celebrates the rich heritage of the blues and highlights contemporary performers during three days of live performances — all FREE and open to the public, no tickets required.


Our Chicago Blues Festival Package includes 3 nights lodging in easy walking distance to the festival. We provide concierge services which will provide you with highlights to the festival and related performances at area blues clubs, maps and travel tips, and more.

The 2018 Chicago Blues Festival Weekend Package is $500. You can select the Chicago Blues Festival Weekend Package as an add-on option when you register for your class. If you are coming from outside the continental US, the Chicago Blues Festival Weekend Package is included with your registration at no additional charge, do not select the option to pay for the package, but do let us know if you will be staying over for the weekend.
