COVID-19 and the C-U Folk and Roots Festival

The C-U Folk and Roots Festival family is highly cognizant of the need for all of us to stay safe and healthy during this challenging time. All upcoming, in-person festival-sponsored events have been put on hold. In the meantime, we also recognize the incredible importance of music and the arts in our lives.

We strongly encourage everyone in our community to find ways to support the musicians whose livelihoods have suddenly disappeared. Watch their shows online and contribute via donate links. Buy their merch. Buy their music! Please also support our local businesses, especially the places that remain open and/or are selling online. Our local festival sponsors and partners include the Rose Bowl TavernPage Roasting CompanyBlack DogIron PostCommon Ground Food Co-op, the Music Shoppe, the Community Center for the Arts, and others.
