Southern Indiana Blues Festival


Visit our new website for complete details and answers to all of your questions!

Bill Monroe Music Park & Campground has been hosting live blues since 1999. The first Bean was held June 11 - 13, 1999 by John Hall who decided to throw a party in the woods of Brown County, Indiana for his harmonica customers. As everything in life, things change. In 2020, COVID19 took us on an unexpected hiatus from live music, but we are excited to have live music back at the park this year. It is about supporting the musicians who have struggled through many challenges for over a year and a half without performing.

As we enter another chapter in the blues, we invite you to come out for the weekend and support these amazing and talented musicians who made it through tough times. Isn't that what the blues is all about?

Southern Indiana Blues Festival – August 26-28, 2021. Thank you for supporting live music, Bill Monroe Music Park & Campground. Interested in volunteering? Sign up today:
