2023 Festival Steering Committee

Wiregrass Blues Society gathering, 2021 at the Thirsty Pig in Dothan, Alabama

What is the Wiregrass Blues Festival Steering Committee?

As the name suggests, a Steering Committee helps to steer the planning of the Wiregrass Blues Fest from beginning to completion. More specifically, the planning timeline for this 2023 Festival Season is August 2022 to April 2023.

The committee will be key players or partners in the project or those with particular expertise to lend to the project. It is vital to involve people who are/desire to be directly involved with the organization and community. The WBF Steering Committee will help serve the organization and Festival organizers.

Our members will take priority when choosing a steering committee.

What is the role of the Wiregrass Blues Festival Steering Committee?
