Fourth Edition of Blues for Food Fest a GO!

The fourth annual Blues for Food Fest will take place at Magnuson Park Amphitheatre on Saturday, September 4, 2010, from 12 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Blues for Food Fest is a celebration of food, music and community designed to raise money and awareness for the P-Patch Trust and the Washington Blues Society's musicians' relief fund.

It is an all-ages event featuring live music by some of the finest blues bands in the Northwest, great BBQ from Pete's Wicked Rack BBQ, and a fabulous pie auction featuring luscious, seasonal homemade pies. There are children's gardening activities, too, and it's all in your own backyard! With free parking!

Hop on a bus, bike or boat (yes, you can walk or drive, too) and join us for one last summertime blast! This premier Labor Day end-of-summer event will celebrate the abundant harvest of Seattle's P-Patch food bank gardens.

Seattle's P-Patch food bank gardens, community farms, and community fruit tree harvests donate more than 10 tons of fresh organic produce every year to local food banks, meals-on-wheels and other feeding programs, transitional housing, and shelters for women and children. Solid Ground/Lettuce Link volunteers will be at the Blues for Food Fest at the “Beet Hunger" booth to receive fresh organic vegetable donations. By promoting and sustaining blues artists, their passion for blues and their commitment to life, love and giving back to their communities, we hope to create a special relationship between musical networks and food networks. We believe that together we can reap a flavorful harvest.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
