I've enjoyed many shows at the Blythe Festival, but the Guy Lombardo show was no better than OK. I wouldn't want to see it again, so I really can't recommend it. The musicians were also the vocalists and herein lies the problem. The cast members...More

Thank you for these kind words. We're very proud of this building, which was originally built by the community to commemorate the loss of Blyth area soldiers in World War I. The community rallied again and renovated the building in 2017.
