Every year on the Friday night before the Fest,
a PreFest Party is held to  show appreciation
to our sponsors and volunteers and showcase
some of the talent appearing the next day at the Fest.

Normally that consists of an opening act provided by
The Colorado Blues Society, who have graciously agreed
to supply again this year.

Then, the only band to have played at
every Trinidaddio Blues Fest and PreFest Party,
and will continue that tradition in 2017,
Los Albuquerque Blues Connection.

And finally we have always had as a headliner, one of
the national acts performing the next day.

  This year as part of our surprise, instead of one,
the PreFest Party will have 3 National Acts
and will Star:

From Brooklyn, NY

Alexis P Suter Band

Now for the other part of our surprise

New for 2017, as a special Thank You to all of our Sponsors,
Volunteers and the City of Trinidad,
the PreFest Party will be a FREE EVENT!

The PreFest Party is being sponsored by the
City of Trinidad Economic Development
as well as other gracious donors
and will be held in the middle of the Central Business District.

An ‘Entertainment District’ will be in place allowing attendees to walk with alcoholic beverages from the main stage area at the corner of Main & Commercial Sts to various restaurants, bars and other businesses within the district.  Alcoholic beverages may be purchased in the Entertainment District, however, they may not be brought into the Entertainment District.  Music will start approximately 6pm and last until at least 10pm.  Don’t forget to bring a chair!

Thank You!
