Who are we? This FREE EVENT, Founded in 2009, the Paoli Blues Fest encourages community involvement by sponsoring and hosting events for public benefit and enjoyment, including a diverse realm of blues musicians. Our new location is the beautiful 90-acre Wilson Farm Park, where we will continue our tradition of promoting blues and blues rock music in the community, while we increase awareness and preserve, cultivate, nurture, and promote an appreciation and understanding of blues music in general, its historical influence and importance as an American cultural expression, and its relevance to the local history of the area. The annual free-to-the-public concert is attended by thousands of people from throughout the Philadelphia area. In addition, the Paoli Blues Fest asks attendees to donate canned goods to local food banks. To date, our attendees have donated many thousands of pounds of food, while the Foundation has also provided thousands of dollars in scholarships to area students to study music at our local music schools.
After three years of waiting out the pandemic as well as construction on our venue site, we are back at work planning a great day of blues and community fun for all ages, but we cannot possibly do it without the help of YOU, our fans, friends and community small businesses.
