The Bay Area Blues Festival is the merger of two great Festivals: the Downtown Martinez Italian Street Painting Festival and San Francisco’s Polk Street Blues Festival.
For many years each of these long standing free events have attracted thousands of attendees to the communities where they have been held. Both have provided great forms of entertainment to the attendees and it made perfect sense for Steven Restivo Event Services, Inc. and Main Street Martinez Inc. to partner and bring both forms together into one great new Festival.
The Festival is held in Historic Downtown Martinez, CA. It will feature amazing Blues music on two stages, Arts and Crafts Exhibitors, Gourmet Food booths, local Restaurants, community booths, kids activities, a Farmers Market, craft beer and fine wines, and of course chalk art! Kids can also purchase chalk to create their own design and have some creative fun!
If people are looking to escape the crowded big city and want to enjoy a warm, friendly neighborhood atmosphere, Historic Downtown Martinez is the place.
About Downtown Martinez:
Established in 1849, Martinez is one of the oldest towns in California and has served as the county seat of Contra Costa County for more than 130 years. Nestled at the gateway to the Delta, the City is home for 36,700 residents. Come visit our historic downtown and spend a relaxing day strolling our tree-lined streets where shops retain their early 20th century charm.
You’re just a train ride away from our award-winning Amtrak Station. Don’t miss our bustling marina and waterfront that offers beautiful bicycling vistas, hiking trails, world class bocce ball tournaments and a new 10,000 square foot Skate Park.
While you’re here, visit the historical home of John Muir, one of California’s first and foremost environmentalists and co-founder of the Sierra Club. Martinez is also the birthplace of Joe DiMaggio and the martini!
Please join us at one of the only remaining free Blues Festivals in Northern California!
