About the Festival

The Kenlake Hot August Blues Festival began in 1990 as a one-day event. The festival has grown into a three-day event, which takes place on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday before Labor Day Weekend each year. Previous years' acts have included Delta Moon, Deja Blues Band, Toad Strangler and several other notable blues musicians.

Guest can enjoy live music, great eats and a variety of resorts and lodges to make the weekend comfortable and complete.
