Admission:  There is no admission fee...that's right, this event is free to attend!  What is included in your $0 admission fee?  It includes 2 full days of world-class Blues Artists.  We do sell T-shirts as a source of income to support our charity.  So, be sure to stop by the Franklin Blues and BBQ Tent in the center of the park to make your donation and buy a souvenier shirt.  

Parking:  There is street parking around the park and on surrounding streets.  The spaces directly behind the band stand are reserved for artist loading and unloading  (Elk Street between 12th Street & S Park Street). There are also municipal parking lots behind Liberty Street between 12th Street & 13th Street on both sides. These streets are named Elk Street and Buffalo Street. The municipal parking lots are about 1 block from the park.  There is designated motorcycle parking on 12th Street between Liberty and Elk Streets, beside the courthouse.  Please be courteous...we don't want any "thunder' during our festival.  Also, obey all posted parking regulations so that your day ends on a positive Blues note!

Seating:  This event is held in the city park in the middle of downtown Franklin, PA.  There are several park benches and a few picnic tables, but that is all.  Please be sure to bring chairs or blankets as there is a large lawn area surrounding the stage.

No canopies please as the park area is small and canopies may obstuct the views of other attendees.

Food:  There are numerous independent food vendors throughout the park selling their delicious products.  All vendors are Safe Serve Certified and are fully insured.  They set their own pricing for their products and there is no "price fixing".  Most of the vendors are barbeque vendors, however there are other "festival" foods available for purchase.  Each year, the vendors apply and go through an acceptance process to be part of our event, so please be sure to provide us with your feedback.
