The 28th Annual Bayfront Blues Festival promises to be the biggest and best ever, and being that KOOL 101.7 is the official radio station, we have presented a list of Dos and Don'ts to enjoy the show, and stay out of trouble.

Do-Bring Your Appetite, here's a list of Vendors

Don't Bring Your Own Food


Do-Bring a rain poncho or small umbrella.

Don’t-Bring a tent.


Do-Bring a lawn chair, fold up chair, camping chair, or blanket. (One chair per person)

Don’t-Bring a chaise lounge, tanning lounge, office chair or couch.


Do-Bring a stroller or playpen

Don’t-Bring your Daycare set-up of a slide, swings and sandbox.


Do-Bring a book, headphones to monitor the weather, or some playing cards.

Don’t-Bring lawn darts, horse shoes, or any beach type games.


Do-Bring your air guitar, air bass, air drums and feel free to "Rock It Out" all weekend long.

Don't-Get really drunk rush the stage or sing at the top of your lungs with the wrong words while falling on the people around you.


Do-Bring the least amount of stuff from your purse or wallet, because Bayfront Blues Festival  is not responsible for your lost items like baby pictures or credit cards.

Don’t-Bring a gym bag full of twinkies or a cooler, bottles, or outside food or drink.


Do-Feel free to use the Biffies located on the grounds.

Don’t-Bring a porta-pottie or a plastic bag to pick up your “accident”, let me just say the

trees get watered on a regular basis, you don’t need to help.


Do-Bring sunglasses or binoculars to see better.

Don’t-Bring any recording devices, audio or video, really, drinking all that beer are you

gonna put together an award winning documentary, no. It will be your friends

showing their naked rear end and flipping you off.


Do-Be prepared to have your bags and purses searched at the door.

Don’t-Expect that you will be groped during this search like the FAA in New York. Unless you want to be groped, come and see Ron Houk and Chris Allen. Just Kidding....or are we?


Do-Bring a jacket, sunscreen, lip balm, extra socks.

Don’t-Wear a thong bikini and hope that will be good enough for the whole weekend,

after all, where will you put your change?


Do-Bring cash to enjoy adult beverages (or soda), great food, or buy merchandise from

the performers and Bayfront Blues Festival.

Don’t-Expect a refund or rain check. The shows are rain or shine.


If you are smart, you won’t let your friends or yourself drive home drunk!! For more on Bayfront Bluesfest, click here.
