How to Get to the Columbia Pike Blues Festival – 2014

May 28, 2014

It's blues time on the Pike!

The 19th Annual Columbia Pike Blues Festival will be on Saturday, June 14 from 1pm until 8:30pm and is free to the public.

This years' lineup starts at 1pm with Steve McWilliams & The Spectacles - a tribute to Chris Polk, followed by Duffy Kane, Memphis Gold, Billy Thompson, and at 5pm, the amazing Ana Popovic Band.

The Blues Festival will be at South Walter Reed Drive and Columbia Pike, one block east of Glebe Road in Arlington. There are many ways to get to the Blues Festival without a car. Here are a few:

  • MetroBus 23A runs from Crystal City Metro on the Yellow and Blue Lines, all the way to Tysons Corner Center, connecting through Shirlington Transit Center, Columbia Pike, and Ballston Metro on the Orange Line. Festivals goers should get off at the Columbia Pike and Glebe Road bus stop and walk one block east on Columbia Pike to Walter Reed Drive.
  • During the Blues Fest, Pike Ride Metrobus 16B, 16G, and 16J, and ART 41 provide frequent and convenient transportation along the Pike.
  • With four locations within a couple of blocks, Capital Bikeshare may be a fun way to travel to the Blues Festival.
