Blues by the Bay 2020

If you purchased tickets or VIP passes which were to be honored at our 2020 or 2021 Tampa Bay Blues Festival, your credentials will be fully credited to the festival currently scheduled for April 8, 9, and 10, 2022 in Vinoy Park, St Petersburg, Florida. 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.
