Redwood City Blues Festival T-Shirt Design Contest



Friday, 1 April 2016 to Tuesday, 31 May 2016

          Redwood City Blues Festival T-Shirt Design Contest

The Redwood City PAL Blues, Music, ARTS and BBQ Festival features blues musicians from the Bay Area and beyond. The festival offers wonderful live music, a family area with an arcade for children, delicious food, and showcases Redwood City’s Courthouse Square, along with Redwood City’s downtown merchants and restaurants. Proceeds from this fun and exciting family festival directly benefit the important youth programs of the Redwood City Police Activities League. This contest will support an after-school art program for elementary students run by the Pacific Art League at Redwood City PAL.

If selected, your design will be printed on all the T-shirts and posters for the 2016 festival, and will also appear in web and print marketing.
