LIVE MUSIC & FESTIVALS
The Eau Claire area has always been a hub of creative energy, and all of this energy comes out during Eau Claire's many music festivals. These festivals are places where locals and visitors come together, collaborate and celebrate the blooming art scene. Whether you're into country, rock, bluegrass or indie, there's a festival for you.
For you country lovers, Country Jam and Country Fest will be perfect for you. The indie lovers come back year after year for the iconic Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival. You could rock out at Rock Fest. There's also Blue Ox Music Festival for the bluegrass lovers within us all. It may seem that these festivals couldn't be more different, but the vibe in Eau Claire reigns over them all. The compassionate people, the indie attitude and the artful culture are sure to shine through no matter which festival is most your style.
If you can't commit to a full weekend of festivities, luckily there are plenty of local places you can get your live music fix. Venues all over town host live music night after night, so all you have to do is find the right one. Want a beer with some live music at The Plus? Brunch and some calming music at The Lakely? Check out the talent at UW-Eau Claire at The Cabin? All off these options are great, and those are only the beginning.
