The dates have been announced for the 2017 Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival right here in Eau Claire. On June 16 and 17, music fans from all over the region, country, and world will converge in our fair city for the third installment of the beloved experimental art festival. Plus, tomorrow (Sept. 9) at 10am, a limited amount of presale tickets will already go on sale at www.eauxclaires.com, for all you go-getters and early-bird types.

The inaugural fest happened in July of 2015, and this year's was in August; now the festival's looking at a June date for 2017. So if you do the math, Eaux Claires III is only nine (-ish) months away! Isn't that somethin'? 

And FYI, the three-day Blue Ox Music Festival will run the weekend before Eaux Claires on June 8-10 in the adjacent Whispering Pines Campground. Country Fest will kick off in Cadott the weekend after from June 22-25 with headliners Blake Shelton and Thomas Rhett. Rock Fest is July 13-15 in Cadott, and Country Jam is July 20-22 in Eau Claire.
