The North Atlantic Blues Festival is an annual two-day blues music festival featuring national blues performers and considered one of the most prestigious on the East Coast. The festival was held at the Public Landing in Rockland, Maine, overlooking the picturesque Rockland Harbor. Some of the top names in blues music have been featured at this prestigious East Coast festival. I recognized a couple of the bands, only because we have friends that are huge blues music fans.
Scott and I aren’t huge blues music fans, but we weren’t going to miss out on this event – especially since it was being held right down the street from us.
In addition to all day live entertainment, the festival had vendors selling a wide array of food, drinks and crafts. Because we always love to support local businesses, we purchased a cute set of coastal style coasters that were made in Bali and a lobster trap Christmas ornament.
Saturday evening Main Street is closed to traffic for the North Atlantic Blues Festival Club Crawl. Attendees of legal age, wearing their wristband from the festival are allowed free admission to the many bars and restaurants featuring many of the top regional blues performers. There were also bands performing on Main Street for all ages at no charge.
People traveled from all over to attend this music festival and it was so nice to meet so many of them.
