It’s a holiday weekend and while I’m sure many of you have chosen the  out of town vacation route, there’s still plenty of opportunities for fun times in the District if you’re sticking around. One of which is the 22nd annual DC Blues Festival.

The festival opens at noon this Saturday with the Big Boy Little Band and a slew of talented blues crooners who’ll be sticking around until 7:30 p.m.

Festival gates located at the Carter Barron Amphitheater located at 4850 Colorado Avenue NW (near 16th street and Colorado Avenue) open at 11:30 a.m.

For a complete listing of all the live acts scheduled to perform visit the DC Blues Festival website.

Admission is free.
