King Biscuit Blues Festival heavily relies on sponsorship to produce such an event, but with COVID-19, those funds are limited. Donations accepted by Sonny Boy Blues Society will help to sustain King Biscuit operations towards its future success.

A special thanks to Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage & Tourism ; Delta Cultural Center and the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council for funding the virtual event artists.

A HUGE APPLAUSE goes to our 2020 King Biscuit Blues Festival Presenting Sponsors:
