California Roots Festival

Monterey County Fairgrounds, Monterey, CA 93940

California Roots Music & Arts Festival is dedicated to incorporating sustainability onsite and into our core daily business operations. We pledge to reduce our impact on the environment by aligning ourselves with other like-minded organizations, making earth-wise choices regarding the products we purchase, promoting environmental awareness to our fans, staff & artists, & continuing to set the bar higher each year in our commitment to sustainability. To date we have diverted over 500,000 single use plastic cups and bottles through our Steel Pint & REVERB's Rock n' Refill Programs, sold over 40,000 multi-use steel pint cups and Nalgene bottles, offset over 12 million pounds of carbon over our 4 year partnership with TripZero, and parked 3,500 skateboards at our free, onsite Bike & Skate Valet. As a result of our dedication to the environment, in 2020, we became the first certified green event in the State of California!

Cali Roots is not just a music festival, it's a multi-layered experience, curated for music lovers who want to bring more than just stage performance memories home. Sure, we deliver the best of the best in music - our stages are consistently stacked with the who's who in the reggae rock & conscious hip-hop genres with acts of today and tomorrow - but that's not all that makes up our identity! We are proud of all the accomplishments we have made as a community, purposefully implementing initiatives that to further enhance the overall festival experience. As an event and a community we will continue to grow, stretching our branches while always remaining true to our California Roots.
