June 11-12, 2021








Cancelled for 2020 due to Covid-19

After deep consideration, I have made the difficult decision to cancel the 8th Annual Flagstaff Blues and Brews Festival on June 12-13, 2020. Unfortunately, I can no longer justify continuing with planning for The Flagstaff Blues and Brews Festival for this year. Our flagship event is now officially cancelled for 2020 out of an abundance of caution and for the health and safety of all attendees, artists, vendors, volunteers, staff, our sponsors and the Flagstaff community.

Although our event takes place outside the current CDC’s eight week ban, we made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event as there is no timeline as to when restrictions and quarantines might realistically end.  We must respect current guidelines which, in all probability, will be extended for an unknown length of time. We wouldn’t be comfortable with a dark cloud hanging over the event in the form of a highly contagious virus that has already affected scores of people around the country, including in our own neighborhoods.

I know this comes as a disappointment to our music fans, especially to our fans that have supported the festival since the first one in 2013. We thank you for your continued support. We look forward to resuming the festival next year on June 11th and 12th, 2021.

All ticket purchases made to this point remain valid and will be applied to the 2021 festival. If you would prefer a refund, please send an email and your request to info@flagstaffblues.com and your refund will be processed in a timely manner. More updates will be available in the coming weeks.

Our hearts go out to anyone directly or indirectly impacted by the COVID 19 virus.  To those who are sick, we extend to you our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery.

Please support your small local businesses in any way you can. Numerous suggestions have been posted online (my favorite is buy a gift card for use at a later time), but we will get through this together.  Thank you for your continued support of the Flagstaff Blues & Brews Festival. Please join us for our 2021 festival and we can celebrate getting through this pandemic as stronger people!



What can you expect at the Flagstaff Blues and Brew Festival?


Amazing Music

Where else are you going to see Shemekia Copeland, North Mississippi Allstars or Robert Randolph and the Family Band? Sure you could probably see them in Phoenix, but do you want to sit in a stuffy indoor venue with the AC blasting? Or do you want to sit in the grass of an outdoor venue enjoying a cold beer or a glass of wine?


We have 8 microbrews represented along with the old-time favorites. If you can’t find a beer you enjoy, then you’re in a bad mood.


Did you know that we sell wine by the bottle? So, you can share with friends, or make sure you take an uber home.


Not to brag, but we do have some really cool swag and every year we try and expand what we have to offer.

Great Weather

While most of Arizona is experiencing highs in the 100s, in Flagstaff we’re enjoying temps in the high 70s to low 80s.

Off-the-charts Views

The festival sits at the base of Mt. Elden, the skies are so blue, make sure you wear your shades and sitting on a driving range, all you need is a blanket and you’re set.


That’s right this festival has over 30 arts and crafts and food vendors, loaded with great merchandise, yummy food offerings, and fantastic prices.

Kids Area

Yep, we’re family friendly and proud of it. The kid’s area will see kiddos with hula hoops, beach balls, playing games like connect 4, and sometimes they get to make guitars out of cereal boxes or enjoying the musical instrument petting zoo.

The Flagstaff Blues and Brews Festival is full of energy from start to finish, and it just builds throughout the day. People have fun, with beach balls, frisbees, cornhole, just enjoying a great day with friends and great music. The team at Peak Events decided it was more important to have a comfortable festival than whole lotta folks that barely get to see the stage. We have fun and everyone who attends has fun as well, so… what are you waiting for? We bring in music that normally doesn’t make it up this far north. We start out with great headliners and work our way down to the first act, each one hand-picked for the vibe they add to the festival.

The Flagstaff Blues and Brews have become Flagstaff’s largest destination festival and the largest supporters of music education. Come on up to the Flagstaff Blues and Brews Festival and if it’s not the best summer event in Arizona, well, you’re just weird.
