Longfellow Roots, Rock and Deep Blues Music, Art and Food Festival
The Longfellow Roots, Rock and Deep-Blues Festival is an environmentally conscious community-driven summer music, arts and cultural event that takes place in the Downtown Longfellow (Lake/Minneahaha) area in South Minneapolis.
This 6th annual award-winning celebration of Minnesota craft, culinary and performance art in the Longfellow neighborhood returns on Sat, July 16, 2016 (1pm till Midnight) and will again feature an eclectic mix of performances from the best local, regional and national acts across multiple stages, and a wide variety of craft food and beverage options.
In addition, this years fest will see the return of LoLA (League of Longfellow Artists) exhibitions, an international food court, live painting and interactive art activities, complimentary bicycle valet service and satellite performance stages at several local businesses, as well as a variety of unique offerings from neighborhood establishments.
This unique city-center festival also remains the annual fundraising mechanism for the non-profit community theater Patricks Cabaret www.patrickscabaret.org which celebrates its 30th anniversary in April of this year! (While Patricks has recently announced plans to relocate following its series of anniversary celebrations this spring, this annual festival remains unaffected.)
The 2016 LRRDB festival will again boast multiple musical stages with top-notch live entertainment throughout the day and evening outside, and well into the night inside several neighborhood locations.
2016 LRRDB festival musical acts include; Charlie Parr, Black Eyed Snakes, Spider John Koerner, Lightnin Malcolm, Dave Moore, Kent Burnside & The New Generation, Superior Siren, Erik Koskinen Band, Crankshaft & The Gear Grinders, Joe & Vicky Price, Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank, Jeff Ray & The Stakes and many more TBA.
The complete up-to-date festival lineup can be found on this site, with additional acts being announced throughout the summer.
*Due to the ongoing reconstruction of Minnehaha Ave this summer, LRRDB festival will return to its slightly smaller footprint of two years ago and tickets will be in limited supply this year. It is strongly recommended that attendees purchase in advance to ensure admission. (A small number of discounted tickets are also available for a limited time, starting April 1st.)
The Longfellow Roots, Rock & Deep-Blues festival would like to thank all of our neighborhood presenting partners and our sponsors, as well as the participating artists, businesses and residents for their ongoing support.
