Attracting people from far and wide, the annual Destination Blues Music Festival takes place in Columbia and Montour Counties, featuring acts ranging from solo acoustic performers to electric bands to a full Gospel choir. Headliners this year include the Otis Taylor Band, Lea Gilmore, Joanna Connor, and John Nemeth. Most of the performances take place in family-friendly restaurants and bars with no cover charges; attendees enjoy the best of our area’s food and drink – think brewpubs! – in addition to the music. Venues hosting the two main events include a Masonic temple and a church sanctuary, both of them landmarks of Victorian-era architecture that helps create unforgettable experiences.
