Event Details

After last year’s shift to virtual, the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville TN is happy to announce the return of the Exit 56 Blues Fest Saturday, May 29. The music festival will be presented as a one day event and will take place from 10 am until 6 pm. Along with local and regional Blues acts, festivalgoers will enjoy a Corvette and Classic Car Cruise In, arts and crafts and great food, including Brownsville barbecue.

“It’s exciting to be able to bring the Blues Fest back this year,” says Sonia Outlaw-Clark, Director of the Delta Heritage Center. “Last year’s shift to a virtual platform helped us continue to honor our rural Blues heritage but there’s nothing like having people here in person to enjoy it.”
