The 8th 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 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 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 a variety of Longfellow neighborhood brick-n-mortar restaurants, including; Indian (Gandhi Mahal), Pizza (Geek Love Cafe), Parkway Pizza, and much more TBA.

This year’s festival will again be green as we implement the Zero-Waste initiative, using only 100% compostable and recycled materials. In addition, (at least) one stage will be solar-powered! Bring your reusable water bottles. Water will be supplied by the City of Minneapolis.
For our two-wheel attendees and we have partnered with The Hub Bike Co-op to offer a free bicycle valet service with a special speed entrance’ to the festival grounds.
The festival is proud to be working with a wide variety of neighborhood presenting partners including Moon Palace Books, The Hub, Gandhi Mahal, LBA, LCC, LoLA and many more, as well as our incredible sponsors, including; Indeed Brewing, Radisson Blu, KFAI-FM, Jameson Whiskey, City Pages, Hell’s Kitchen and many more!
Tickets are general admission for this music and arts marathon are available for just $15 if your an early bird! Tickets are available online, at The Hook Box Office, The Electric Fetus, & Hymie’s Records in Minneapolis. After the limited amount of $15 early bird tickets are gone we will have $20 advance tickets for sale. We are limiting the number of total festival tickets this year as the foot print is intimate. Do not wait until the day of festival to purchase your ticket. If tickets happen to be available day of show they will be $25 at the gate.
