Updated August 25th: We reviewed current sanitation requirements, and have determined that an open water station on site is not a viable option to maintain a safe standard of sanitization for all of you.
While you are packing your gear for September 3rd and/or 4th, make sure to pack some sealed bottled water to bring for yourself and your family, and of course you can visit our Food Vendors for beverages as well!

- Blankets, tarps, etc. – by all means come prepared to be comfortable we only ask that you are courteous to other guests and only occupy as much space as you need and spread each grouping out to maintain social distancing. Evenings get cool so bringing extra blankets might be desirable!

“I LOVE BBRF!!!!!
I have been attending BBRF for several years now. It is my favorite thing to do in Beaumont. It is a relaxed, safe and fun atmosphere for families, while still being a great place to hang with friends and listen to some great music.
The music is always good and flows all day. They have several great food trucks and merchants to check out while enjoying the tunes. They have brought some big names to our little town and there is something really special about listening to Serena Rider, Chantal Kreviazuk, The Sheepdogs and so many more in the shadow of our beautiful church. Proud to be from Beaumont.
If you have never attended this festival you are missing out! Don't be on the outside of the fence again, make sure you get tickets every year and don't miss this amazing event, right here in Beaumont!”

“Amazing event! Organizers and volunteers rose to occasion and out did themselves, providing a fun and covid conscious festival.
Performers were outstanding. We are so thankful for the thought and effort put towards the event as it allowed for some normalcy this summer. Thank you💗”
“I love this festival! It keeps going from strength to strength! The atmosphere is so welcoming and relaxed, a great festival for the whole family. I also love the variety of food trucks, vendors and having the two stages keeps the music playing all day! So lucky to have this festival so close to home in Beaumont. Can't wait for next year!”

“Such a well run, organized event!”
“Amazing music and fun for the whole family. We've gone every year since they moved to Four Seasons. We buy the early early bird tickets in December before they even know the lineup, that's how much we love this festival. We're going no matter who is performing.”
“First year going, and it was FANTASTIC!
Great atmosphere, friendly people and the music was top notch!
Definitely returning in 2020 🤗”
“Great music in a kid friendly environment!”
“Super community spirit, great music. Fun to be there!”
“Awesome line up , great food and drink ... didn’t spend a lot of time waiting in lines. Free shuttle to and from the campground was awesome !”
“Awesome 😄👍🏻amazing bands, had a fantastic time👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻”
“I loved my experience at the Beaumont Blues and Roots festival. This was my first year at the festival, and it was a great experience. The choice of artists was top notch and the attention to choosing a variety of artists was fantastic. I enjoyed that so many of the bands and musicians were from the Edmonton/Beaumont area as there are so many people making great music in this area. And Friday night's lineup of all female artists was big. That night featured so many powerful Canadian female's on stage sharing their talent I almost couldn't believe I was there in person.”
“We have been attending the Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival for many years and it just keeps getting better each year! It is so impressive that this high level, well organized festival is completely ran by volunteers. We are so proud that this event is in our amazing community of Beaumont, what a fantastic asset to the town 🙂”
“This is one of my favourite weekends every year! Great music, great food and even better company!”
“My first time attending Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival. What a great little festival! Awesome artists, loved the size. Easy to get to, great view from anywhere you sat. I will definitely go back!”
“I have performed at and attended an awful lot of music festivals over the years.
BBRF has a charm and spirit like no other. I plan on being there every year.”
“We attended our first Blues and Roots festival this year and I am so happy we did. What an amazing event to have in our own little town. The atmosphere was fantastic and you couldn’t beat the fact that you could see the show from anywhere you sat or stood. Our kids had a blast. You could take the whole family or just go as couple or with a group of friends. You’re sure to run into someone you know. How fortunate we are to have such an event each year. My only disappointment was that we never took the time to attend this brilliant event from the get to go. We will be adding to this to our yearly calendar as a must attend. Great value, great music and extremely well organized. Kudos to the organizers and volunteers that make this event happen! Thank-you BBRF!”
“This was the first time I have been to the Bluesfest. It was amazing! Fantastic music all around, an intimate set up that was both comfortable for families and individuals, great amenities, and well organized! Thank you to all of the volunteers who put their time into this event. I will be a big supporter in years to come! Loved the headliners this year and look forward to another great time next year!”
“LOVED this festival! It was my first time attending and I was very, very impressed 🙂 Will definitely be going again next year. Kudos to everyone involved in the planning and organizing. See you next year!”
“This is my second year going to BBRF. I love the family friendly atmosphere, the music is great, I like that it’s all Canadian talent! The festival is so well organized, you get inside the grounds, set up your spot and really enjoy relaxing with family and friends. Serena Ryder was amazing! I loved “Nice Horse” as well. Invite them back!! Thanks for the hard work all the volunteers put in too!”
“This was the first year that we went and can not figure out why we haven't previously attended. The musicians were fantastic, the atmosphere was great and the hospitality is second to none. It is a gem of a festival and highly recommended.”
“An absolutey wonderful festival. You can feel the heart and soul that goes into it!
All Canadian and all heart!”
“A great festival featuring all-Canadian acts performing a range of blues and roots music. Lovely location in charming Beaumont, AB.
Well run & organized with a good family atmosphere.”
