One of the biggest outdoor parties in MPLS + STPL returns this weekend! The 7th Annual Longfellow Roots Rock & Deep Blues Fest #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. 

In addition to the live performances—check out the lineup below—this year’s RRDBFest event will continue to showcase a wide variety of local Longfellow artisans, with both individual vendors and a LoLA exhibit, showing off an eclectic array of work, from paintings, illustrations and recycled art to jewelry, textiles and much much more.
