The Monterey Bay Blues Festival is held every year at the Fairgrounds, and hosts the highly acclaimed, as well as up and coming performers. This event is always a favorite and highly attended.

A major part of the vision of the Monterey Bay Blues Festival (MBBF) was to plan and deliver a successful and profitable blues festival which would enable the Board of Directors to introduce a quality outreach program to thousands of students in this tri-county area of California. In 2009, after 24 festivals and numerous secondary events and fund raisers, the MBBF board is proud to report that the portion of their vision that embraced youth and the arts with emphasis on music is a growing success. MBBF will soon break the two million dollar mark in funds they have directed to scholarships to county students, grants to local non-profits, "paid" local volunteers representing local social non-profit agencies, and the MBBF BITS (Blues in the Schools) program.
