Winter Blues Fest

Saturday, February 13th, 7:30 pm

Elks Lodge - 198 Pleasant Street, Willimantic, CT

There’s no better way to beat the doldrums of Winter than Willimantic’s Winter Blues Fest. The Mighty Soul Drivers join forces with The Gravediggers to help you dance away those Winter Blues with a night chock-full of rockin' Soul dance numbers, down-in-the-alley testifying, and some funky Blues. Shake off that cabin fever while helping raise money for the Willimantic's 3rd Thursday Street Fests - proceeds from this event go to support those fabulous free summer events!

Every 3rd Thursday from May to September, thousands of people from far and wide stroll along Main Street, Willimantic amid a background of musical, theatrical, visual, gastronomic, and olfactory delights.

Five stages simultaneously host a wide variety of music and entertainment while over 100 vendors showcase a variety of handcrafted goods and services. Willimantic's diversity really shines through in the delicious authentic international cuisine. Enjoy locally produced artwork, beer, music, and soda. Street performers and free children's activities abound!
