June 2, 3, 4 & 5th is the date – Eureka Springs is the place! Bluesfest weekend comes around every year and we love it! Besides being an awesome gathering of blues artists, this festival benefits one of our favorite things in town, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. It also benefits the HART fund, which is for musicians and their families in financial need from health issues.
Every year incomparable blues musicians come to town and there is music in every venue and on every corner. This year’s headliners include Coco Montoya and Elvin Bishop, who will be playing at the Auditorium. Many other names that will be appearing all over town include Rose Ledet, Little Joe McLerran, Buddy Shute and many more! On a beautiful spring weekend, you’ll hear fantastic music all weekend long at the Basin Park downtown – for free!
We really are a perfect location, within an easy 10 minute walk to all the main venues. But when you’re ready for some peace and quiet, head back “home” to us at the B&B, because we’re away from the maddening crowd!
Most lodging in Eureka Springs has a 3-day minimum that weekend and they fill up fast. We do still have a couple of rooms left ourselves, but they won’t last long. No matter where you stay, make sure that you add the Bluesfest weekend in Eureka Springs to your bucket list – it will be a weekend you’ll not long forget!
Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!
