Delighting fans for over a decade, the Jackson Blues Festival is one of Jackson’s only dedicated music festivals. With live blues music each June that rivals Chicago or Detroit, crowds gather at the Jackson County Airport in the thousands, toting lawn chairs and ready to enjoy some of the best blues musicians in the business today. Bringing some of the best blues bands in the area, as well as food vendors and many other interesting booths, this event draws people of all ages, even getting the kids involved with a harmonica lesson called the Harmonica Hounds.
