Three years running the Railroad Square Music Festival is a FREE day of music in Santa Rosa's Railroad Square. It is a project of The North Bay Hootenanny, a Santa Rosa based non-profit that has been working for the past five years to bring the North Bay music world to another level.
We couldn't put on this celebration without the help from our volunteers and sponsors. The main sponsors of the 2017 event were Lagunitas Brewing Company, Virginia Dare Winery, and the City of Santa Rosa. The event is produced by Second Octave Entertainment.
The mission of the festival is...
- To expand our local music community by creating an unforgettable accessible music experiences for visitors and locals alike.
- To show the world that the North Bay is a vibrant arts hub and encourage people to come here to experience the scene for themselves.
- To send a message to North Bay performers that they should shoot for the stars and feel proud about their important role in the community.
Proceeds from the festival will benefit West End Farmer’s Market’s EBT matching program, a 501c3 where patrons can double their EBT funds up to $25 to purchase locally grown organic produce.
