Columbia Pike Blues Festival

Nationally Renowned Blues and Blues-Inspired Performers

Tune in to WERA 96.7 or stream-on-demand from your own backyard!

Every summer since 1995, Columbia Pike has hosted the largest Blues Festival in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. But in the age of social distancing and in the interest of public health, we’re bringing the blues—and even the beer—to you this year! Bust out your radio or speakers and be part of a one-of-a-kind “Backyard Blues Fest.”
