The Great American Blues Festival

The Great American Blues Festival was created to benefit 501c charities in Bay County aimed at helping our community and children. At the same time, we also strive to produce a quality festival that will bring people to our beach from all over the Southeastern United States. 


The Great American Blues Festival is taking place August 16-17, 2014 at Aaron Bessant Park (Pier Park) in Panama City Beach—home of the world’s most beautiful beaches!

Featuring some of the top Blues acts in the Nation, The Great American Blues Festival has set the bar high and throwing everything in to make a big impact in our community.

Get ready ‘Merica, it’s time for some Blues, Beer and Barbecue!
