Ship and Shore Blues Festival, Michigan City, IN

blues art

For two days national and local artists will head to Michigan City to croon the blues to the audience gathered at the lakefront Guy Foreman Amphitheater for the Ship and Shore Blues Festival. The first singer takes the stage at noon and the last act of the day goes on at 10:00 PM.

Not only is there great blues, but  festival-goers can express their creativity with Wine & Canvas, or Cookies & Canvas for the kids. Local artists provide step-by-step instructions to help participants create a painting while sipping wine or cocktails.

Even those who have never ridden a motorcycle can experience  a Harley Davidson – on a stationary stand under the supervision of a pro. Fire up the engine and switch through the gears for a taste of the Harley experience.

Kids can hang out in the Kids Quest area for arts and crafts, face painting and other activities, or play video games in the climate controlled Game Truck.

Tickets are available online at the festival website or at the gate the day of the festival.
