The 29th annual Mississippi Valley Blues Festival is coming up July 4 through 6 at Davenport's LeClaire Park.  Volunteers are still needed for all shifts July 3 through 7, including admission gate, beer tent, set up and tear down, and backstage hospitality.  Over 200 volunteers are needed.

Volunteers receive free admission to the Blues Festival as well as a souvenir festival t-shirt.  Priority is given to Mississippi Valley Blues Society members.  "Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Blues Festival," says Patty Britt, volunteer coordinator.  "The Mississippi Valley Blues Festival is the only major blues festival in the nation that's produced by a volunteer organization, the MVBS.  We rely on volunteers to help with all aspects of the festival."

To register, go to www.mvbs.org and click on BluesFest, then Volunteers.  That will take you to the registration page.  Or call the Blues Society office at 563-32-BLUES.
