Calabogie Blues and Ribfest: August 18-20, 2017

August 18th 2017 until August 20th 2017

The Fifth Annual Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues & Ribfest August 18-20, 2017!

Blues artists and ribbers from across North America will be taking over the Calabogie mountainside for a weekend of all things blues! A weekend fun for families and people of all ages - beer garden, vendor’s area, kids’ zone, mountainside camping.

Sit mountainside and let the lazy days of summer slide by listening to some of the best blues artists in the industry and…. bring an appetite and vote for your favorite ribber as five  rib teams battle for the “Best” in show.  

Close to the city, but far from distractions, the natural amphitheatre created by the mountain makes Calabogie Peaks an ideal festival location. A family resort and event, the venue includes resort amenities and recreation experiences complete with a beer garden sponsored by Steam Whistle Pilsner, vendors, kids area, chairlift rides, beach and lake activities and spectacular fireworks.

Come for the day or stay and be lulled to sleep with the Blues.  On site camping is available for ground tents, pop-ups and RV’s.  Tickets for one day, full weekend and full weekend with camping can be purchased on the festival website.

Come to the mountain where the beat is blues and the meat is ribs!
