Festival Description

The Juke Joint Festival is half small-town fair and half blues festival rolled into one. The “small-town fair” portion of the event includes a vendor staging area, student art show and professional pig races. Not surprisingly, the festival’s most popular component is the juke joints at night. The planned night time music venues range in capacity from 25 to 250 people.

Festival Dates April 12 - 15, 2012
