27 Sep The Slim Chickens King Biscuit Blues Festival VIP Winner Is…
Every year, tens of thousands of blues enthusiasts gather along the banks of the Mississippi in the historic blues capital of Helena, Arkansas, for the famous, multi-day King Biscuit Blues Festival. In homage to our Southern roots and as our way of sharing the Delta’s musical heritage as we would a Southern-style meal with friends, we decided to sponsor a VIP Giveaway for the 2017 Annual King Biscuit Blues Festival, including all-access festival passes, hotel accommodations and gift bags for four.
From September 1-20, 2017, eligible participants submitted their entries by completing their Slim Chickens eClub profiles, and we’re excited to announce that the lucky winner of our Delta blues getaway is Kerry Hicks from Longview, Texas. In October, Kerry and three friends will enjoy VIP treatment while enjoying showcase performances from the country’s leading blues artists across five stages. As part of the experience, they get full access to the festival’s VIP Party and Tent, as well as enjoy street musicians, the Flour Power 5K Run, Tour da Delta bicycle race, a Kansas-City-sanctioned BBQ Contest called BBQ & Blues on the Levee, Call & Response Blues Symposium, Mississippi River Cruises, food and arts/crafts vendors and one-of-a-kind shopping at downtown Helena’s eclectic shops and boutiques.
Thanks to all who participated in the giveaway from everyone here at Slim Chickens, and we wish you hearty congratulations, Kerry! Enjoy The Biscuit, Baby! Also, it’s not too late to start planning your own trip to the Delta. Single and Three-Day Festival Passes are still available. Get yours here.
