Welcome to the El Cerrito Free Folk Festival, a daylong arts and music festival that is free of charge and open to the public. The generosity and sponsorship of the San Francisco Folk Music Club and The City of El Cerrito Arts and Culture Commission have made the annual El Cerrito Free Folk Festival possible.
We are updating the site for 2017!! The festival will be held on October 28, 2017.
The Festival offers two stages of music performances, music and dance workshops, a family program and spaces for spontaneous jams. Join us to listen, learn, play and enjoy live music in our community. This exciting event features performances and workshops from world-renowned and local musicians alike, with open microphone and jam sessions.
The festival is run by the San Francisco Folk Music Club, a non-profit organization that was founded in 1948 and is still going strong. Membership is open to everyone and is encouraged for all.
We always appreciate help from our volunteers – see our Volunteer page.
