Event Schedule
Live Entertainment

No visit to the CA Poppy Festival™ would be complete without fantastic music. In addition to local instrumental and vocal groups from all genres, festivalgoers can relax and reminisce with friends and family while enjoying sensational live music. A host of multi-faceted performers and their signature sounds are certain to inspire audiences of all ages all three days. 

Attendees will also be able to enjoy a variety of strolling entertainment throughout the festival. Some of these entertainers last year included Mango and Dango, Violin on Fire, and many acts provided by our local high schools.

A 2023 live entertainment schedule will be available soon! Stay tuned!
