30th Annual Simi Valley Cajun and Blues Music Festival Planned for May 25-26, 2019

The 30th annual Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival will once again fill your Memorial Day weekend with two days of great music and great fun. Taking place Saturday May 25 and Sunday May 26 at Rancho Santa Susanna Community Park (5005 Los Angeles Ave., Simi Valley), this popular festival features two stages delivering non-stop performances showcasing an array of acclaimed Cajun, Blues and other roots-based music acts.

Single Day tickets are $25 for adults (ages 13 and over) per day, and $45 for a 2-day pass; children 12 and younger are free.Note: only $30 single-day tickets will be available at the gate with cash and credit card being the acceptable forms of payment. The Festival also offers a limited number of SuperTicket passes for the Blues Stage. For $124 for a single day or $199 for both days, SuperTickets holders get a reserved seat, in the shade, directly in the front of the Blues Stage as well as private bar access (and two complimentary drinks) and other exclusive “backstage experiences.”

Concertgoers will be pleased to know that this year the Festival has the green light on allowing pop-up tents, so folks can bring their own pop-up tents and enjoy some relief from the sun. There will be 30,000 square feet of shading and low back chairs are recommended for seating.

The main event at the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival remains the music, and this year is no exception with an impressive lineup that crosses genres and spans generations. There are two stages - the Blues Stage and Cajun Stage. Some familiar names include Queen Nation, Spin Doctors, Lisa Haley & The Zydekats, Ambrosia, Jefferson Starship and others.

Since its start nearly 30 years ago, the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Festival has garnered international attention and grown into one of the largest music festivals of its kind west of the Mississippi River. Jazz Weekly’s George W. Harris has hailed the Festival, proclaiming, “forget the Playboy Jazz Festival, the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Fest beats the older and richer sister. This is coming from a jazzer, yet still, pound for pound and dollar for dollar, I have more fun here than in Hollywood … (it) “delivered music made to last…(and I) can’t wait until next year.”

A presentation of the Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise, the Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival donates 100% of its profits to charitable, educational and humanitarian causes on a local, national and international level. A list of these organizations may be found at www.simicajun.org/who-benefits.
