Untapped Blues & Brews 2014 Will Happen in Tri-Cities After All
The 2014 Untapped Blues & Brews Festival in Kennewick has been saved.
KENNEWICK, WA - Back in January the organizer of the Untapped Blues and Brews Festival announced it wouldn't happen this year.
Dave Nichols said he just couldn't handle the planning and financial responsibility on his own anymore.
But it didn't take long for support from fans, sponsors, vendors and musicians to come pouring in.
Townsquare Media Events will be an especially important partner with promotions.
Nichols said, "They've got deep history in sponsoring and organizing events similar to Untapped, so when I announced we were going to be suspending it they came to me and said that they would like to step in and help make sure it stays part of our community. So I'm real excited about that."
Untapped 2014 will be on Mother's Day weekend, May 9th and 10th at The Clover Island Inn on Friday, and The Benton County Fairgrounds on Saturday.
