It was my first New Blues Festival experience. It was smaller space than expected but it was fine. My only complaint which was stated in last year's reviews is that proximity of the two stages to each other makes it difficult to hear either one. I...continued

I went there specifically to see Barbara Morrison and although brief, she did not disappoint, being in admirable form. The talent was very good. Directions and parking were absolutely awful. We walked along the path about 2 miles!! Signing was...continued

I had great company and would have given it a better rating if they hadn't had two stages In which one could hear both at the same time. It was set up poorly. If they had set up the two stages and they didn't play at the same time it would have...continued

Unfortunately we got there much later than planned. The Kasey Hensley band was very good and we will be following her!
We were disappointed in the vendors. For an event that you can't bring food to they didn't have much of a selection. It is...continued

I took a date. The experience was very nice. The only recommendations that I would make would be to add more signs at the entrance to the park, to easily guide guests in and... a clearer designation of the VIP parking area. But these were minor...continued

Watermelon Slim was awesome, as always, it's a shame he so rarely plays in NYC. I couldn't stay for the other two performers, but heard that they were both wonderful, too. It's amazing to have 3 great talents on one show!

It took a while for the main stage to get it together to much time wasted needed to be more organized.

Overall, a very good event. Great artists entertained us all day. The variety of food choices was good.

The only complaint, and it was a big one, was about the port-a-pottys. There were not enough of them, and they became nasty very early. Next...continued

Entire event was much much smaller than expected. Very few vendors or food options but parking was simple and close by. We felt it was poorly organized. Two bands playing at the same time only 40 yards apart so you could hear both at the same...continued

Great show! It was a small festival, only two stages and one food stand, and a few snack stands and beer, wine and liquor, of course. But lots of great music from great bands all day and a fun time!

The concert set for Guitar Shorty was over 30 minutes late. He played only 3 songs. He was the main draw and everyone was disappointed. The last 2 act did not play due to the rain. We should have received partial refunds.
