The Dodgeville Bluesfest organizers are looking forward to the annual event on at the end of July. Held in a tented area behind the historic Iowa County Courthouse downtown, the festival has been enthusiastically received after a rain out the first year. The free event brings name bands to the small town for an afternoon and evening of great blues music. Dodgeville merchants hold sales worthy of Maxwell Street offering incredible bargains on the street and in their stores.
Special programs for children and arts and crafts booths add to the bustling atmosphere downtown. Local volunteer groups man the food and beverage concessions. The event draws thousands and is the highlight of the summer season. It is sponsored by the Dodgeville Area Chamber of Commerce. Specific information about this year’s event will be posted on www.dodgevillebluesfest.com as it becomes available.
