There IS a cure for the Summertime Blues

On Friday and Saturday, July 13th and 14th, music lovers will gather once again at the Fox Mountain Camping Park (6126 Aylesford Road) for the Valley’s newest rocking tradition, SMOKIN’ BLUES FEST 2!  This two-day event featuring 20 acts from: NL, NB, NS and PEI, embraces East Coast blues and exposes the great talent our region has to offer.

SMOKIN’ BLUES FEST 2 promises to be the cheapest weekend of quality entertainment in the Maritimes this summer with weekend passes costing just $40 (day passes are $22.60). It’s also an event of few rules (but much respect). You’re allowed to bring-your-own-beverages (no glass!) and there are desirable amenities such as: hot showers, flush toilets, security, first aid, vendors and everything else you need on site.

Organizer Jay Chetwynd explains, “The intent of this festival is to give people an option for a STAYCATION that is both appealing and affordable. Our pricing is extremely low and there are no $7 plastic cups of beer, $4 bottles of water, etc. We want everyone to be able to have a good, full weekend and we’d love you to come back next year. A lot of the bands on the bill have worked with us by playing for reasonable rates, they understand the importance of working together to build this event into something huge!”

Grab your tickets today at, participating Superstores or by calling 847-3747. Camping is only $10 a night (RV’s welcome). For more info call 691-4747.
Now you know where to go for your cure for the “Summertime Blues”.
