The 9th Annual #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 visual art, hand-crafted jewelry, textiles and much much more.

The Roots, Rock & Deep Blues Festival will also feature a variety of local, Longfellow neighborhood brick-n-mortar restaurants, including: Matt’s Jucy Lucys, Indian Cuisine from Ghandi Mahal, pizza, salads, and more from Geek Love Cafe located inside Moon Palace Books.


The Firehouse Performing Arts Center is committed to helping the planet by inspiring the live performance music industry to go green. We ask our guests to observe our continued commitment to zero-waste and low carbon footprint initiatives. We are committed to using 100% compostable and post-consumer recycled materials and at least one solar-powered stage.

Bring your reusable water bottle. We’ll have reusable water bottle refilling stations, with water supplied the City of Minneapolis.


We encourage all attendees to consider biking! For our two or three-wheeled guests, we’re partnering with The Hub Bike Co-Op to offer a free bicycle valet service. All bicyclers get to take advantage of our exclusive Speed Entrance to the festival grounds.


The festival is proud to be working with a wide variety of neighborhood presenting partners including Fulton Brewing, Jameson Whiskey, Absolut, Altos, Nobool Presents, City Pages, KFAI, Vital Printing, Radisson Blu, Longfellow Life, Longfellow Business Association (LBA), Lake Street Council (LSC), Minnehaha Lake Wine & Spirits, and many more!
