35th Annual Winthrop Rhythm and Blues Festival

July 15-17, 2022

Website:  Winthrop R&B Festival

Now in its 35th year, the Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival is BACK! after two years of virtual festivals.

Thank you for supporting us through some rather difficult times. It’s because of you we are here and we couldn’t be more grateful. During the last two years, Winthrop stayed busy learning how to bring the music virtually but NOW we are back to live and in person. Woohoo! We are so excited to welcome our Festival family with open arms! 

A truly world-class event, the festival has received the coveted Keeping the Blues Alive award for Best US Festival from the Memphis-based Blues Foundation, which lauded the event for its strong, long-time commitment to its community and to presenting the best of the blues.
