The Sparta BluesFest Committee is excited to announce this year's festival is moving to Evansville, IL. along the Kaskaskia River. Water Street Bar and Grill will host “Sparta BluesFest Presents: Blues on the River” on July 19th. The Sparta BluesFest has been providing the day-long event for over 10 years, and is pleased to have the opportunity to work with the Village of Evansville this year, providing us a different site with a fresh atmosphere.

As always, the Sparta BluesFest is seeking vendors for the day. Limited space is available, so be sure to reserve your spot soon. Vending is available to both not-for-profit groups and public/private groups for $75 each. Vendors are welcomed to sell up to three food items at their tent, and will be asked to confirm their selection ASAP to prevent duplication.

Please contact Cathy Presswood at pwood99@verizon.net for more information.

The Sparta BluesFest will still be providing Sponsorship at different sponsor levels for the event as well. Corporate Sponsorship includes premium reserved seating, access to private setting at all times, free meals and drinks all day, 20 admission tickets, and access to air-conditioned restrooms with running water, all for $500. Each level of sponsorship, ranging from $50 - $500 enjoys admission to the event (varying # of tickets) and advertisement on printed signage during the event. For information on becoming a sponsor of the BluesFest, contact Debi Klausing at debijo55@yahoo.com. The Sparta BluesFest Committee is looking forward to an exciting event, and hope to see you there!
