Blues for Food Fest, Saturday, September 3, 12 to 7:30 PM, at Magnuson Park.

If the big crowds of Bumbershoot are a turn-off, give the Blues for Food Fest a try. A self-described "intimate, family-friendly event," the Blues for Food Fest will showcase local blues bands while raising money for Seattle's P-Patch community gardens. According to the event website, in 2008, city-wide P-patches donated 40,000 pounds of organic produce to food banks, meals for wheels programs, and homeless shelters.

This year's lineup features Alice Stuart Duo, Wired!, The Rectifiers, James King and the Southsiders, and Linda Myer's Portland All Stars.

Kids will have the opportunity to nurture their green thumb with family-friendly activities like worm bin exploration, a bug hunt, saving seeds, and learning how to harvest vegetables. Adults can treat themselves to beer and Creole soul food.

Get your tickets here. All proceeds will benefit the P-Patch Trust and the Washington Blues Society's musicians relief fund.

Music with soul and food with a conscience, what better way to kick off the Labor Day weekend?
