The Waterfront Blues Festival & KBOO: celebrating 25 years of playing the blues & fighting hunger

Categories:

The Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival is the largest blues festival on the West Coast and the second largest blues festival in the nation.

The festival not only brings the best blues artists to Portland, it benefits Oregon Food Bank's work to eliminate hunger and its root causes ... because no one should be hungry.

KBOO has been involved with the Waterfront Blues Festival, formerly the River City Blues Festival, since before it became a fundraiser for the Oregon Food Bank (then Oregon Food Share). We've media sponsored the festival and broadcast live at every Festival.
