DME Blues Cruises

2017 Blues Cruises

Blues Cruise

Cruise the beautiful Willamette River and hear the blues in an intimate setting on the Portland Spirit. A no-host hors d’oeuvres buffet and full bar are available on all cruises.

To avoid disappointment, purchase your ticket before the festival begins. The popular DME Blues Cruises sell out quickly. 

Tickets go On Sale Spring 2017!
