The W.C. Handy Blues and Barbecue Festival is set for June 12th-15th at Audubon Mills Park along the riverfront in downtown Henderson with a lineup of 17 acts ready to perform over the four day span while we all chow down on some delicious barbecue!

This year's lineup was released Monday by the Henderson Tourist Commission, and includes the acts below. Plus, as has been the case for the previous 28 festivals, admission to the event is free! All you need to do is bring a few lawn chairs to sit in while you enjoy the music.
