Thank you for supporting the 2015 Waterfront Blues Festival!

BRAVO! THANK YOU!

You made Blues Fest a success and helped us surpass our goal!

The 29th annual Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, presented by First Tech Credit Union raised $1,043,571 for Oregon Food Bank over the 4-day event.

From the gates opening on July 1 to the culmination of the festival on the 4th of July with fireworks, the event was one of the best yet! Weather was perfect, the music was hot and the support of attendees was amazing.

With your help, along with our generous sponsors, we will provide nutritious food to 1 in 5 of our neighbors facing hunger during the summer months and beyond.

Stay tuned!

Oregon Food Bank's Hallmark Event

Oregon Food Bank

Oregon Food Bank has produced the Waterfront Blues Festival since 1988 to raise necessary funds and awareness to fight hunger in Oregon and Southwest Washington.  This Portland hallmark event has become a treasured tradition for locals and visitors alike. 

The Waterfront Blues Festival is Oregon Food Bank’s largest fundraising event -- thanks to our sponsors, our longtime attendees and the contributions of more than 2,000 volunteers each year.  With your dedication to this unique festival and our ever-important cause, we are able to help 1 in 5 of our neighbors who face hunger.

Thank you for supporting Oregon Food Bank!  We look forward to seeing you next July as we all rally to end hunger through this 4-day festival and celebrate a 4th of July Blues weekend tradition.
