The Ringside Cafe shows begin at approximately 10:30 p.m. and run until around 2 am. Admission is FREE, so you'll want to head on over after the festival ends on Saturday night.

The Saturday After Shows feature the amazing Eric Gales at 10:30 and 2020 Blues Band of the Year winner, Nick Moss Band, at midnight .

We hope you'll enjoy these free concerts, after the Festival concludes on Saturday evening. This is a fun way to extend your music, while hanging out with your friends and experiencing the friendly vibes of downtown St. Petersburg.

Your purchases will be protected and no further action is required on your part. Replacement credentials will be furnished to you well prior to the 2022 festival. If, for any reason, you are unable to attend in April 2022, we will also extend your tickets and VIP to the 2023 festival, at no additional expense to you.

We appreciate your cooperation. The governmental restrictions placed on large gatherings in St. Petersburg , as a result of the Covid -19 crisis , give us no other alternative. Thank you for supporting live blues music.
