Originating in 1981, the Baton Rouge Blues Festival is one of the oldest free blues festivals in America. During the past three years, the festival has become one of the nation's fastest growing blues festivals of its kind, consistently growing in attendance to more than 18,000 people ranging from ages 18 to 65. Produced by the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation, the festival is made possible in part by the foundation board of directors, a volunteer Blues Festival Committee, numerous sponsors, partners and local support. All revenue generated from the festival goes towards the mission of the Baton Rouge Blues Foundation to help continue its goal to promote, preserve and celebrate the Swamp Blues music native to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
