The City of Chicago once again celebrated its annual festival to the blues. The 26th Annual Chicago Blues Festival kicked off from Friday, June 12th through Sunday, June 14, 2009 in Grant Park Chicago. The Chicago Blues Festival is the largest free blues festival in the world, bringing artists, fans and blues journalist from too many nations to name. The weekend is a laid back atmosphere just off the Chicago lakefront with blues performances on six stages with the main night's festivities finishing off each night at the Petrillo Music Shell.

The festival grounds at the intersection of Jackson and Balboa streets offered food, memorabilia, good times and music. On the East of the festival, Gibson Guitars brought their traveling music trailer. Musicians and attendees were able to stop in check out some of the guitars and even try them out. Gibson hosted a full stage with some greats performing over the 3 days.
