Since late last year, founding organizer Ted Gehrke had been mounting what he called a “last-ditch” effort to keep the Metro Fountain Blues Festival alive. At the same time that the festival was celebrating its 30 anniversary in 2010, SJSU’s Associated Students was forced by its financial situation to pull out as the main sponsor. Well, HE DID IT. New location will be at St. James Park on July 9th, 2011. The sponsor isn’t ready to be named.
Metro Fountain Blues Festival hosts over 8000 blues enthusiasts. Patrons enjoy food and crafts vendors, a great Beer and Wine Garden, the best sound system, a family friendly atmosphere, and, of course, the best musicians playing wonderful American music
