The Winter Blues Festival is in its 24th year this year and promises something for everyone: fantastic artists in comfortable venues, brilliant food and drink options, and a Family Space suitable for blues fans of all ages.

The Winter Blues Festival has gone from humble beginnings in 1999 as a one-Sunday-afternoon event on the street with a handful of bands – to become a festival that sprawls across 4 days in venues around the town of Echuca. The festival is one of the longest-running and most important events on the blues festival calendar. As always, the event is free.
