Garvin Gate Blues Festival


The Garvin Gate Blues Festival is held the second weekend of October on the streets of Historic Old Louisville, the corner of Garvin and Oak Streets; the largest Victorian preservation neighborhood in the USA. Many of the top names in blues music have performed here since the festival being in 1988.
GGBF is an annual two-day arts and music festival featuring local and national performers and is considered to be one of the most prestigious blues festivals between Chicago and Mississippi.
This FREE event is presented by the Garvin Gate Neighborhood Association and is sponsored by Louisville Metro Government District Councilman David James and Four Roses Bourbon. Proceeds from sponsorships and vendor sales benefit the Garvin Gate Neighborhood and the Old Louisville Preservation District.
