EAST TAWAS – Members of the Tawas Bay Blues Society Board announced last week that this year’s Blue by the Bay Festival has been cancelled due to the CORVID-19 pandemic.

“Unfortunately, there are circumstances outside of our control and we are going to have to cancel this year’s festival,” the Tawas Bay Blues Society Board said in a statement. “Believe me when I say, this decision did not come easily and we waited as long as we could hoping things would change.

“We look forward to seeing all of you at next year’s festival! We appreciate your support and understanding in these difficult times. Stay safe and healthy and we’ll see you in 2021! 

Next year’s Blues by the Bay Festival will be held Aug. 27-29.
