California Roots Music & Arts Festival at the Monterey Fairgrounds

California Roots isn’t just a music festival; it’s a movement. It’s a way of life. It delivers a cosmic blend of good vibes, true happiness, family, peace, love and joy to all who enter. When Jimi Hendrix torched his guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival in the late ‘60’s, he changed the way an entire generation looked not only at music festivals, but life itself. It is out of this same pure energy–the energy of natural and peaceful rebellion–that California Roots was born. We discovered the ecstasy that culminates from listening to awesome music, smiling at your neighbors and dancing with strangers; California Roots is about living life to the fullest

Cali Roots was one of the first California music festivals to have Live Painters on stage painting while the musicians performed, which has become a common sight at many music festivals these days. Cali Roots brings in the Offset Project to work toward a zero-waste experience. Vendors use only foodware that’s compostable and volunteers help you separate your waste.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own bottles, since no one sells bottled water (a partnership with Klean Kanteen makes sure you won’t get parched). Refill at the purified-water stations scattered throughout the grounds or partake in the pint program: Buy a refillable glass for discounts on beer, or bring one from a previous year’s fest. And you can park your bike or skateboard for free in the Valet! Cali Roots has also partnered with Trip Zero, which works to address and negate the carbon footprint created by travel to the festival.
