During the past 29 years, the festival has grown steadily in size and reputation and is recognized as the nation’s premier blues festival. Since 1988, the festival has raised more than $10 million and over 1,000 tons of food to benefit Oregon Food Bank. The 2016 festival raised $1,043,571 to fight hunger in Oregon and Clark County, Wash. Along the way, the Festival has brought to Portland’s Waterfront Park blues/soul/roots legends, many of whom made their Northwest debuts here. Newer acts have also had the opportunity to show case their music and style. KGON is the Official Radio Partner of the Waterfront Blues Festival!
