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; Gandhi Mahal, Geek Love Cafe, & Parkway Pizza.
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 Tap 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, Downtown Longfellow, LoLA, Longfellow Life and many more, as well as our incredible sponsors, including; Indeed Brewing, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Altos, Absolut, Radisson Blu, KFAI Radio, City Pages, Jazz88, Bayport BBQ, Copycats Media, DSI, Palmer’s Bar, Minnehaha Lake Wine & Spirits, Klash Drums, Twin Town Guitars, Hell’s Kitchen, KUMD, & KVSC
