Since The Blues was the common denominator and impetus for the formation of the Fox Valley Music Foundation, it is appropriate that a section of this website has been dedicated to the cornerstone of the FV Blue’s scene, The Blues On The Fox Festival.
The Festival was started in 1997 by the Fox Valley Blues Society and is currently celebrating 19 years of providing the finest in live blues music. This year’s lineup, which takes place on Friday and Saturday, June 19 and 20, 2015 and can be viewed on our events calendar here. The Festival takes place at RiverEdge Park just north of downtown Aurora.
A continuing themes of Blues on the Fox is annual festival poster. The posters have been generated each year since the inaugural Blues on the Fox Festival in 1997, and every year thereafter. In recent years, the posters have taken on a particular character due to the fact that they have all been created by one man, Rex Bohn, who has come to embody Blues on the Fox with his scratch board art posters. The Rex Bohn posters (2003, 2006-2015) featured below have become synonymous with Blues on The Fox.
