Redwood Coast Music Festivals was established to:
1. Promote economic development through increased tourism at a time of the year originally selected by local hotel managers as most necessary to the local economy. To date over 20 million dollars has been returned to the local community.
2. Provide support for local senior citizen programs. To date over $300,000 has been donated for senior programs.
3. Promote music education for youth by funding school music clinics with professional musicians, scholarships, hosting two annual Children’s Concerts for grades K-8, and featuring local youth talent in the annual festival line-up. To date over $100,000 has been directly donated to these programs in addition to the performance programs.
Our goal is to continue to build and expand the festival to become one of the best music festivals on the entire West Coast. Great music and great times are our goals. Family-friendly atmosphere, intimate venues as well as large performance auditoriums - with plenty of dance floors. We want to bring the best musicians from all around the country to one of the most scenic locations in the country - the North Coast of California - Combining the best scenery and the best music in the West to make a memorable event for all. Redwood Coast Music Festival - Location, Jazz, Swing, Blues, Zydeco & Country - it's ALL HERE at Eureka's American Roots Music Festival!
