Long Beach Folk Revival Festival



Do you work here?
Property Summary
The Long Beach Folk Revival Festival is a fun, family-friendly, music festival that showcases the best in Folk, Roots, Americana, & Bluegrass music acts. In addition to the great music, all the fan favorites from last year are back including our signature contests, amazing gourmet food, interactive kids area, vintage shopping & so much more.

This festival is all about bringing the family and community together to enjoy a slice of “True American Music”. We have seen the revival of folk music several times in the last century and once again music plucked out on a banjo or crooned over an old guitar is gaining popularity. Folk music bridges the gap between young adults and seniors because the simplicity of the music is something all generations can identify with. This is why the Folk Revival Festival attracts a diverse demographic with middle to upper level income that include families, seniors, teenagers, and young adults.

Two years ago we packed almost 2,000 people in a location that holds 1,500 and this past year we saw over 3,000 in attendance at our much larger location. This year we boast a much more popular lineup and expect our numbers to rise to 5,000+.

Festival Highlights include:

  • Beautiful ocean front location in downtown Long Beach, CA
  • The best local, regional, & national Folk & Roots acts on 3 stages.
  • Local craft beers & gourmet food trucks.
  • Banjo, Pie Eating, and Mustache contests.
  • Wee Folk Village with activities, crafts, music demos, & more.
  • Local artisans, craft vendors, & our “Vintage Bazaar” shopping.
  • Open Bluegrass jam sessions & variety entertainment

    Fan Base

    Folk Revival fans come in all walks of life and the festival tends to draw a very diverse crowd in every sense. The majority of our crowd consists of the 30-60 age range who are general fans of the music style and we have seen the biggest growth in family attendance. With the growing popularity of Folk music we also draw well from the 21-25 age group. These are college, and post-college aged singles that love collecting unique “experiences” that they can share with friends. This produces a unique blend of young and old that are in love with all things vintage, old timey, & genuine.

    Unique Sponsorship Opportunities

    We have several unique sponsorship opportunities at the festival which offer complete cross-branding and the highest level of exposure to our patrons. Festival-goers are tired of being bombarded with banners & awkwardly placed logos, but they love a unique “experience”. We can seamlessly tie your brand or product to one of the many unique experiences at the festival for maximum return on your investment.
