About Bloomington Blues & Boogie Woogie Piano Festival

The Bloomington Blues & Boogie Woogie Piano Festival - known as Bloomington Boogies - features acclaimed piano players, dancers, food and beverages. With free and ticketed performances at multiple venues and free educational components, the 2016 festival was voted one of the top 10 festivals in Indiana! Our mission is to present acclaimed piano players in ticketed and free performances and to present free educational programs so that young people and young pianists are exposed to world-class artists in Bloomington, Indiana. This year the festival is expanding to three days of events: On Aug. 12, activities take place outside and inside the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center, 122 S. Walnut St., with free performances beginning outside at 1 p.m. and occurring all day, and ticketed performances in the Whikehart Auditorium later in the afternoon. More free performances begin at 8 p.m. at Bloomington Boogies After Hours at Malibu Grill, 106 N. Walnut St. On Aug. 13, we present concerts for students at three public schools, followed by three free piano workshops.
