Redwood Coast Music Festival

What’s your favorite music? Whatever genre you prefer, chances are, you’ll find a number of highly enjoyable live music performances at the Redwood Coast Music Festival, the American Roots Festival that features 50 live performances across four straight days in the waterfront city of Eureka, Ca.

From Thursday, Sept. 29 through Sunday, Oct. 2, the quaint Victorian old town and waterfront will be hopping to a variety of tunes but if you’re after more than just amazing music, enjoy the year’s final Friday Night Market in Old Town, then discover culture of a visual variety by touring galleries and shops during Saturday’s Arts Alive!

After a two-year pandemic-forced hiatus, the Redwood Coast Music Festival returns with seven venues hosting musical acts. Artists will perform at:

  • Red Lion Pacific Grill
  • Adorni Center
  • Eureka Theater
  • Eagle House
  • Morris Graves Museum
  • Sequoia Conference Center
  • The Veteran’s Memorial Building

The Delta Nationals will open the show Friday.

Something for Everyone

Tickets are available for a single day, single night, or an all-event pass. All event and prime time tickets only on sale online and at all Coast Central Credit Union Member Service Branches.

There’s ample variety in this year’s lineup. Listeners can ease into some Traditional Jazz, then get moving with Hot Jazz, Hot Western Jazz, and New Orleans Jazz. Probe the depths of your soul with the Blues and R&B, or pick up the pace with Jump Blues.

If dancing is your pleasure, you’ll find Swing, Country Swing, and Western Swing. Channel some Honky Tonk and Cajun music from the deep south, then head to the islands for feel-good Calypso and Zydeco. And of course, fans of Early Rock & Roll will hear their favorites, along with some Funk and Boogie sprinkled in.

And That’s Not All!

Admist the music, be sure to find time to hunt for bargains at Humboldt Sponsors 55th Annual “Final” Rummage Sale, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 1 at Redwood Acres Fairgrounds. This year’s event is being called the “Grand Finale” by Humboldt Sponsors, the all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds solely to benefit the youth of Humboldt County.

Shop three entire buildings full of great buys for the whole family. Admission is free as is plenty of free parking. More information can be accessed on the Humboldt Sponsors website or by calling (707) 499-9935.

If you’re more of a participant than spectator, Drawing from Imagination may be your preferred activity during this festive weekend. Hosted by Two Street Art Lab at 527 2nd Street on Sept. 28, the event features training on how to translate your vision to the page. Local illustrator @ArtbyMungo welcomes all skill levels and this workshop is for anyone aged 16 and older. Email or call (707) 440-9294 for additional details.
