The 7th Annual Longfellow #RRDBfest will again include all the unique components of previous years that have set this event apart from the myriad of Twin City outdoor events each summer. Most notably, this award-winning event continues to be artist-driven, volunteer-run and a fundraising mechanism for the brand new non-profit arts organization, The Firehouse Performing Arts Center.
In addition to the live performances, this year’s RRDBFest event will continue to showcase a wide variety of local Longfellow artisans, with both individual vendors and a LoLA exhibit, showing off an eclectic array of work, from paintings, illustrations and recycled art to jewelry, textiles and much much more.
This annual event will also see the return of the acclaimed International Food Court with authentic street food offerings from a variety of Longfellow neighborhood brick-n-mortar restaurants, including; Indian (Gandhi Mahal), Mexican (Nuevo Rodeo), Italian (Parkway Pizza), and much more TBA.
