In its 5th year the Long Beach Folk Revival Festival returns on September 16, 2017 from 11am to 10pm to the beautiful seaside location of Rainbow Lagoon Park. With views of the historic Queen Mary, plenty of shade, grass, and fresh ocean breezes, this beautiful park location in Downtown Long Beach, CA sets the perfect stage for showcasing the best in Folk, Roots, Americana, & Bluegrass music acts.

We are going foot stomping, high energy fun this year at the 2017 Folk Revival Festival and we couldn’t be more pleased to share with you the very talented Lucero all the way from Memphis, TN who will be headlining the night with support from outlaw country legend Billy Joe Shaver, former Delta Spirit front man Matthew Logan Vasquez, The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit, Valley Queen, Mapache, and more artist TBA soon!

This family-friendly festival is all about bringing the community together to enjoy a slice of “True American Music”. September has truly become that banjo time of year in Long Beach as the festival ushers in the fall season. In addition to the great music, all the fan favorites from last year are back including our signature contests, amazing gourmet food & craft beers, interactive kid’s area, our “Craft Bazaar” shopping experience & loads more fun stuff that we just couldn’t pack it all in here!

Ticket are on sale now and are $25 in advance (goes up to $30 on July 15th!) and $40 at the door.



The Long Beach Folk Revival Festival showcases popular & emerging folk, roots, bluegrass, and Americana musicians with a deeply community-centric vibe. All the music & vendors have been carefully curated to create an authentic experience you won’t find anywhere else this side of the Appalachians. This family-run homegrown music festival is fueled by a love of everything local, builds a sense of community, and proudly supports sustainable practices.
