The only thing that’s more fun than attending the Blues and Barbeque Festival is pitching in to help make it happen. Good People, Friends and Neighbors show up to and do just that: set up the venue, work the gates, pour beer and sell ice water, support the bands, and take it all down when it’s over. If the thought of remaining sober during your shifts bums you out, volunteering is not for you. If greeting and helping festival goers does seem like something you want to do, then volunteering is for you. We want friendly and fun loving people only, Thank you!


Thank you for your interest in becoming a Food or Craft Vendor. In California, the barbeque is a People’s Choice event where the festival goers determine the winner. There is a $500 prize shared by the top 3 teams. Prizes are given out before the headliner goes on stage. In Eagle Island, there are a few Barbeque vendors who sell food. At either event, the food includes ribs, pork butt, sausage, tri-tip to name just a few. We are open to other food vendors such as ice cream, funnel cakes, corn dogs, kettle corn etc. Cancellation Policy: Blues and Bones requires 10 day’s notice prior to the event for any vendor wishing to cancel their reservation at the festival. Failure to provide sufficient notice will result in a forfeiture of the full vendor fee. If your specialty is not listed just give us a call to discuss. For craft vendors, you can expect a clientele that enjoys quality items at a fair price. Festival goers love to browse and buy crafts and other goods.
