2019 Polk Street Blues Festival | SF

The Lower Polk Community Benefit District and Steven Restivo Event Services, Inc. are hosting the 9th Annual Polk Street Blues Festival.

After years of producing the Blues Festival on Polk Street, approximately 6 years ago, they needed to move the event to Martinez, CA and change the name to the Bay Area Blues Festival. However, in 2019, they bringing the festival back to Polk Street.
