The Garvin Gate Blues Festival is an annual two-day arts and music festival featuring local and national performers and is considered to be one of the most prestigious blues festivals between Chicago and Mississippi.

The GGBF is held the second weekend of October on the streets of Historic Old Louisville, the largest Victorian preservation neighborhood in the USA. Many of the top names in blues music have preformed here since the festival began in 1988.

This FREE event is presented by Four Roses Bourbon and The Garvin Gate Neighborhood Association and is sponsored by Louisville Metro Government District 6 Councilman David James. Proceeds from sponsorships and vendor sales benefit the Garvin Gate Neighborhood Association and the Old Louisville Preservation District.
