There's no lack of free and cheap music events in the East Bay, especially with the ever-popular First Fridays street parties and the slew of new Oakland music festivals that have popped up of late. It can be easy to forget that there's a world of free music outside of Oakland, but the Point Richmond Music Festival is well worth the short trip north. The annual summer festival has been going strong for thirteen years, an impressive feat considering that the Point Richmond Music group, which produces the series, is entirely run by volunteers. The festival brings live music to the corner of Park Place and Washington Avenue in downtown Point Richmond every second Friday of the month from June through September. The family-friendly events each feature two bands as well as other activities, such as face-painting, often drawing more than three hundred people from all over the Bay Area. There's no lack of interested talent, either. Festival organizers said that they reviewed nearly two hundred band submissions this season, allowing them to put together a mixed-genre lineup as diverse as the festival audience.

About Point Richmond Music:

The all-volunteer PRM committee shares a vision of celebrating diversity and promoting the arts and community through the universal language of music. PRM concerts offer a gathering place for people of all ages, ethnicities, and walks of life, who come together to enjoy musical talent of many genres from Richmond, the Bay Area and beyond. In addition to producing its free summer concert series, the group is proud to help support year-round music in Point Richmond through its sponsorship of the Point Richmond Acoustic series and the Point Richmond Jazz series, which run October through May at the First United Methodist Church, and to foster the development of the next generation of musicians through contributions to Washington Elementary School’s music program. Twelve years of this collaborative effort have been made possible through donations of time and money from local businesses and volunteers.

Susan McCloskey: "We LOVED Friday night's concert! I think it was the best yet of the Point Richmond Music series. We have paid big bucks for concerts that we didn't enjoy half a much - great evening!"
