A renowned music event for blues enthusiasts is returning to the Norwich, NY fairgrounds for 2022 - get read for The 29th Annual "Chenango Blues Fest" at the Chenango County Fairgrounds in Norwich, August 19 and 20.

This has been a very popular, long-running event in Norwich for a number of years and is a huge draw for blues music lovers everywhere. Plus, it's kid-friendly with more than just music: arts and craft vendors, food vendors, beer and wine, and camping for those who want to enjoy themselves without worrying about driving.

At this point, the lineup of music acts has not been announced. Organizers are still putting it together but according to ChenangoBluesFest.org, that information will be released soon.

Just to give you a sense of how wonderful the Chenango Blues Fest is, back in January of 2016, representatives of the event traveled to Memphis Tennessee to accept the "2016 Keeping the Blues Alive" award for a US Blues Festival.
