The 2010 Winter Blues Fest will be held at the Downtown Marriott. The annual fest had been held at the Hotel Fort Des Moines, but the 90-year old 10th Street hotel will be closed for a $40 million renovation.
The festival date is scheduled for January 30, 2010.
According to the Central Iowa Blues Society newsletter, Marriott event room rates are $99, be sure to book ahead and let them know you are coming for the Blues Fest.
