It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of our dear friend Gregg Clark. He was our Music Coordinator for 10 years, and brought to our Lebanon Blues Festival the great bands you have come to expect.. His band, The Royal Blues, has played our blues festival since the beginning. We will miss his passion for blues music, his laid back style, his great personality and his laugh. Rest in Peace Gregg.
Our Blues Festival is free!! There is no cost to enjoy the music. Festival Food, Beer and other drinks available for purchase.
Our Blues Festival is held in historic downtown Lebanon with on-street parking. There are a few lots available in town, but asour crowd grows, you will be parking and walking. Please be respectful of Lebanon residents and don't block their driveways.
Please bring your own chairs to our Blues Festival. The Lebanon Optimist Club provides some seating and tables, but because our Blues Festival is extremely popular and well attended, there is not enough seating provided for everyone.
Small coolers are permitted, but carry-in alcohol is not. Coolers will be checked upon entrance and can be re-checked at any time. Our Blues Festival is free, but the Lebanon Optimist Club gives 100% of the proceeds back to the community in grants to Lebanon and Warren County youth-serving organizations. We appreciate your support of our mission in your purchase of food and drink at our Blues Festival.
Be kind to your pets and leave them at home. The hot pavement and crowds at our blues festival create an unpleasant and unsafe enviroment for your fur babies.
This is a rain or shine blues music festival in downtown Lebanon and will not be rescheduled.
The City Parks Dept has decided not to continue with the Red Hot Blues Run. We still encourage you to attend the festival and you don't have to worry about running in the heat.
