For more than two decades, Prince
George’s Community College has been deeply honored to present the annual Bluebird
Blues Festival to the wonderful community that we serve. Major
improvements to the College’s physical infrastructure, however, necessitated
the decision to suspend this well-attended event for the next two years effective 2016, to return in 2018 as
construction/renovation begins on three major capital improvement projects.
The area at the Largo campus that has been the site of the festival for
the last five years is immediately adjacent to the project site and is
undergoing an incredible transformation.
The construction will directly impact the space where
the festival is normally held, and we thought it best to take a hiatus to give
the College a chance to grow, update our existing facilities to better serve
our diverse student population, now more than 40,000 strong, and the community
that surrounds us while keeping participants’ safety paramount in our actions.
We believe that the
construction of the three facilities (Queen Anne Fine Arts, Lanham Hall, and
the new Culinary Arts Center) will assist the College withsecuring more opportunities for our students and our
community. We also believe that it will bring visibility to the important
work in which Prince George’s Community College is already engaged while
attracting additional possibilities for educational investment.
We want to thank you for your continued support.
The Bluebird Blues Festival will be back!
