Coming Up: Wiregrass BluesFest at The Plant

Wiregrass BluesFest at The Plant

We’re days away from the 10th Annual Wiregrass BluesFest at The Plant in Dothan! Get your fill of “Blues, Brews & BBQ” on Saturday, March 25th, starting at 2 p.m.

About the Wiregrass BluesFest

This year’s Wiregrass BluesFest at The Plant is pleased to announce a refreshing lineup featuring five dynamic blues bands. Festivalgoers will be sipping and swaying to the music of King Baby, Sister Lucille, Ben Flournoy Trio, Lil´ Jimmy Reed and The Legacy Band and Big Al and The Heavy Weights.

While you sing the blues, you can also chow down on a Southern classic, barbecue!

For this “winner-takes-all competition,” professional teams must have a license from the City of Dothan. Teams are responsible for bringing tables and everything they need to sell their BBQ throughout the festival. Check out the rules and regulations here if you are interested in participating.

Besides tasty barbecue and live music, there will be arts and crafts vendors, a car show, a charity bike ride, kids’ activities and much more.

But that’s not all. Before the official Wiregrass BluesFest at The Plant on Saturday, there’s the Pre-Fest Party on Friday, March 24th, from 6 to 9 p.m. Guests will have the chance to meet and mingle with the BluesFest performers, plus enjoy free appetizers and a cash bar.

The pre-party location has yet to be announced, so connect with the Wiregrass Blues Society on Facebook or Instagram to stay in the know.

Location and tickets

For the main event on Saturday, make your way to The Plant, located at 308 North St. Andrews St. That’s about three miles from Carriage House Apartments, which means you can dance the day away after about a 10-minute drive!

Singing the blues is one thing, but feeling blue because you can’t find a comfortable apartment is another. Luckily, we’re here for you!
