Soul & Blues Festival 2020 is July 31 – August 1!

About The Soul & Blues Festival
The Soul & Blues Festival is a reworking of the former Iowa Soul Festival. The change in focus celebrates the Black experience through the local and global reach of Soul & Blues music.
Like its predecessor, the Soul & Blues Festival celebrates the music, dance, food, and art of the African and African-American communities that have influenced the culture of the United States.
