Since the debut of the Waukesha Blues Festival in 2006, the festival has proudly presented some great national acts including Booker T. and The MG’s, Mavis Staples, Shemekia Copeland, The Holmes Brothers, and many, many more famous blues musicians.


The title of the Waukesha Blues Fest “An American Music and Art Festival” was chosen based upon the extensive popularity of blues music and the nationwide genre of American music which falls under the general category of Blues.  Some of these include rhythm and blues, traditional and contemporary, soul, Gospel and Roots music, and of course the Country and Rock and Roll influences.


Presented by the Waukesha Rotary Club, with proceeds benefiting the Waukesha Rotary Club Charitable Fund.
