Early Bird Pricing and Ticket Tiers

You know what they say about the Early Bird? They get the best pricing on Waterfront Blues Festival tickets! All 4-Day passes will be offered in limited quantities at each of the three ticket tiers — Early Bird, Tier 1 and Tier 2. The earlier you buy, the better the price! Ticket tiers are simply different pricing levels for the same pass, so benefits and access don’t change as the tier pricing changes. Tiers may change at any time. Simply put, snag your pass soon at the best price!

About the Event


The Waterfront Blues Festival is downtown Portland’s largest and longest-running music festival and one of the most renowned celebrations of the blues in the world. 2022 marks the 35th anniversary of the festival and a jubilant return to downtown Portland’s Tom McCall Waterfront Park.


New this year! All 4-Day passes will be offered at three ticket price tiers – Early Bird, Tier 1 and Tier 2 – so buy early for the best blues for your buck. Please note that a limited quantity of tickets are available at each ticket tier level. Once a tier level is sold out, pricing will jump to the next tier level. Layaway payment plans are available for VIP passes.

1-Day general admission and 1-Day VIP tickets will go on sale later this spring.

We love our blues families! Kids 12 and under free. All children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult ticket holder.
