The Redwood City PAL Blues, Music, ARTS and BBQ Festival, presented by the Redwood City Police Activity League, brings the best of the blues to Courthouse Square in Downtown Redwood City on Friday July 22nd and Saturday July 23rd. The festival features musicians from the Bay Area and beyond. Bringing wonderful live music,  along with delicious food, this free festival showcases Redwood City’s Courthouse Square, as well as Redwood City’s enticing downtown merchants and restaurants.

In its 11th year, the PAL Blues, Music, ARTS and BBQ Festival also boasts some of Northern California’s finest meat offerings, to satisfy even the most discerning barbecue officiando’s cravings.
