The 24th annual Gorge Blues and Brews Festival is Saturday, June 24, in Stevenson, Washington. This is a 21-year-old and over event for both Friday and Saturday.

The scenic drive through the Columbia Gorge adds beauty to the sounds and tastes of this fantastic festival.

Great bands are booked for Saturday as the music flows between the Riverview Community Bank’s main stage and the Big River Grill stage featuring Idle Poets, Ellen Whyte Trio, Mike Klinger Blues Band with Little Curtis, Billy D and the HooDoos, Robin Barrett and the Coyote Kings featuring Tiphony Dames, Sister Mercy, Thunder Brothers and Franko Paletta.  Hot off her 3rd place win at the 2017 International Blues Challenge is Rae Gordon and the Backseat Drivers to finish out Saturday night.

Enjoy nearly 20 great Northwest craft-breweries, wineries and cideries plus food and merchandise vendors.

Dry-camping spots are available at the fairgrounds and only $75 gets you up to three nights (with some sites having electricity).
