Hi Blues Fans! October 1st and Fall is in the air here in Flagstaff!

I want to say Thank you Again… thank you for putting our festival on the map! We had our biggest year this year, not only with attendees, but sponsors, musicians, etc. With your help we have surpassed our goals! I can’t wait to do it again in 2020, bigger and better than ever. I’ve got an incredible team behind me helping me with bands, sponsorships, Public Relations, Media pitches, Social media and so much more!

We are officially 255 days away until the 8th Annual Blues Festival! HOLY COW! How did 100 days just fly by.  I am in the home stretch of booking bands. Fingers crossed they all say yes, because you will be IMPRESSED!

I’m finalizing sponsor packages, because we can’t put this event on without them.  Seriously they bring so much to the table! Not just money, which helps, A LOT, but their ideas, and marketing. Sponsors are such a big role with any event and I am so grateful for our partners.

Someone recently reached out about hotel rooms. I have been working on deals for Blues… so here is what I have so far.

Sonesta ES Suites, $169 for a studio or $229 for a 2 bedroom. Call 928-526-5555 and mention Blues and Brews 2020. This expires 5/12/2020 or when they are SOLD OUT.

Fairfield Inn and Suites, 12% off rooms. Call 928-707-7800 and ask for the Blues and Brews Rate. This expires 5/21/2020.

GreenTree Inn and Suites, $129. Call 928-773-1111 to book, be sure to ask for the Blues and Brews Rate.

Hampton Inn and Suites – East Flagstaff, 12% off rooms. Call 928-433-1234 and ask for the Blues and Brews Rate. This expires 5/21/2020.

Holiday Inn Express Flagstaff, 12% off rooms. Call 928-714-1000 and ask for the Blues and Brews Rate. This expires 5/21/2020.

I am working with the City of Flagstaff to help secure more hotel deals, however nothing is guaranteed and this does not mean anyone will want to offer discounts. The more we grow the more hotels are seeing we FILL them. Which is a good and bad thing. My best advice, book early!

I also want to make you aware of an upcoming show… John Mayall will be here in Flagstaff on Friday January 31st, the day before our tickets go on sale! Click the image below to purchase your tickets.

On a side note, if you don’t know, my mother started the Flagstaff Oktoberfest in 2008… and this Saturday we celebrate 11 years! If you want to enjoy a fun day in Wheeler Park (in downtown Flagstaff), some good food, live music and just a great time, then click HERE to buy a ticket! $10 gets you in!

After this weekend’s Oktoberfest I will be all Blues all the time! Finalizing contracts, selling sponsorships, updating our website, meeting with a social media team to help with our content. As always I love hearing from you.

Enjoy your October and we’ll talk again in November!
