Rentiesville Blues Festival

Description

Labor Day Weekend will be here before we know it, and with it comes another wonderful Blues festival! 

Created by D.C. Minner himself with, and now presented by, Selby Minner and the Friends of Rentiesville Blues Inc., the old cotton field out back will ring with the blues!!

D.C. (1935-2008, in 5 Halls of Fame) knew they were bulldozing old juke joints every day and has kept his family legacy alive here in Rentiesville, where he was born and raised, for people to enjoy from now on.  

Kids are free, we keep them busy. The CHS Adult Jazz band  ROUTE 66 BIG BAND will come in courtesy of Jim Davis. And there is a Gospel Show to start the Festivities on Sunday.  The outdoor part is the most family friendly Blues festival you will find. But adults only in the juke joint, please. All the headliners from the main outdoor stage come inside after midnight and perform their second sets. That part of the show goes on until 5 am!
