Join us at 2010 Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, July 2-5, Tom McCall Waterfront Park

"Water Front Blues" Tom McCall Park

The Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival is the largest blues festival on the West Coast and the second largest blues festival in the nation.

The festival not only brings the best blues artists to Portland, it benefits Oregon Food Bank’s work to eliminate hunger and its root causes … because no one should be hungry.

And we still have rooms left.  So don’t delay — book your reservations now.   Call us at 503-892-5781. or book on-line at www.thefultonhouse.com

Also, remember that there’s a bus stop a half-block from The Fulton House, which will take you downtown to the Festival. You’ll avoid the incredible hassles and expense of trying to park near the Park by taking public transportation, and you’ll also have no fears of a Breathalyzer and DUI if you have a beer or two.

Schedule of Events:  Check out the Waterfront Blues Website for more information.
