about us

Paoli Blues / Main Line Music Festival

Step into the rhythm of history with the Paoli Blues Fest! Founded in 2009 as a non-profit/501(c)3 Pennsylvania corporation, our mission has always been to bring the soulful vibes of blues music to the heart of our community. But that’s not all โ€“ we wanted to create an avenue for local small businesses to shine and connect with our wonderful town!

Back in the day, Paoli yearned for a grand-scale event that could keep the beats echoing through the streets all day long. And so, in 2009, we gave birth to our very first festival. The response was incredible, as an estimated 5,000 guests flocked to the celebration, exploring 25-35 vibrant vendor booths while being serenaded by over sensational local bands.

As the years rolled by, we fine-tuned the festival to perfection. We listened to the music in our hearts and scaled down to one stage, to ensure an even more intimate and unforgettable experience for all. But the magic doesn’t stop there! Our littlest blues enthusiasts are in for a treat with our delightful KidsZone, complete with a moonbounce, face painting, mesmerizing balloon sculptures, and that classic favorite, cotton candy! Of course, we included Paoli Fire and EMS with a Ladder Truck and Ambulance on site for kids and adults alike.

So join us at the Paoli Blues Fest, where blues music meets local charm, and the entire town comes alive with harmonious energy. It’s a celebration of music, community, and a whole lot of fun!

Who are we? This FREE EVENT, Founded in 2009, The Paoli Blues Fest encourages community involvement by sponsoring and hosting events for public benefit and enjoyment, including a diverse realm of blues musicians. By promoting blues music in the community, we increase awareness and preserve, cultivate, nurture, and promote an appreciation and understanding of blues music in general, its historical influence and importance as an American cultural expression, and its relevance to the local history of the area. The annual free-to-the-public concert is attended by thousands of people from throughout the Philadelphia region. In addition, the Paoli Blues Fest asks attendees to donate canned goods to local food banks. To date, our attendees have donated many thousands of pounds of food, while the Foundation has also provided thousands of dollars in scholarships to area students to study music at our local music schools.

After three years of waiting out the pandemic as well as construction on our venue site, we are back at work planning a great day of blues, brews and community fun for all ages, but we cannot possibly do it without the help of YOU, our fans, friends and community small businesses.
