The Rose Park Bluegrass Festival returned this past Sunday to the Rose Park community in Long Beach. Free to all ages, the festival contained a handful of food trucks, local vendors, arts & crafts, games, a beer garden hosted by Beachwood BBQ, and more.

Although the fest only contained one stage, this small fest only needed that one. The entire community could hear the music from a few streets down. In addition to the music, organizers held mini shows or games between sets, such as a pie-eating contest.

Lasting from 12pm-5pm, I saw everything I needed to see within an hour of arriving. Bear in mind that the fest only takes up the space in the circle around Rose Park, meaning that if you wanted to see everything, you would see it all in about two minutes. Locals can spend more time here by bringing their family and setting up chairs picnic-style on the grass of Rose Park.

Considering attending the Rose Park Bluegrass Festival next year – it costs nothing to enter, and you get to see food trucks, local vendors, and more.
