Hound Dog Blues Festival

Saturday, Sept. 21-Sunday, Sept. 22

Listening to the blues makes you feel good. Blues music sounds even better when it supports a good cause. The Hound Dog Blues Festival, Saturday, Sept. 21-Sunday, Sept. 22, is back at Tulsa’s Chandler Park, 6500 W. 21st St., with Tab Benoit, Reba Russell, Trampled Under Foot, the Albert Castiglia Group and more. The two-day festival of contemporary and traditional blues music as well as the Firehouse Chili Contest between local fire departments has plenty to offer music fans. Most importantly, the event benefits Animal Aid of Tulsa, which offers medical services to homeless pets as well as pet adoption services.
