ABOUT THE EVENT /

The 1531 Folk Fest is a Music & Arts festival, in celebration of the Good, True, and the Beautiful. We feature some of the best emerging folk bands and singer-songwriters from Southern California and beyond.

Many are Catholic in faith, but not all. We celebrate art and creativity as a space for conversation and journey of the soul. With over 15 bands on one stage, acoustic workshops, and artisan food vendors, we invite you to bring your friends, family, and instruments, and spend the day (or the whole weekend!) with us.
