Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise to Take a Year And Not Present the Cajun & Blues Festival in 2020

Simi Valley, CA – At a recently held Rotary Club of Simi Sunrise meeting, members voted to take a break in 2020 and not stage the two-day Cajun & Blues Music Festival.  After 30 years, club members felt that it was time to step back to reassess the event and possibly refresh the festival.  This decision was not made lightly.  The club thanks the hundreds of volunteers throughout the years who have helped make the festival a memorable and fun experience for attendees.

The Festival presents live Cajun, Creole, Zydeco and Blues entertainment on two stages, offers more than 150 food, beverage, craft and sponsor booths, and attracts attendees locally and from throughout the county. Festival profits have been donated through the years in support of charitable, educational and humanitarian causes. Thanks to the generous and vital support of our corporate partners, profits from The Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival have resulted in total charitable donations in excess of $1,600,000.

We want to thank the community, the city and the Rancho Simi Recreation & Park for their support throughout the years and look forward to seeing everyone again in 2021!
