About Long Beach Folk Revival Festival

Long Beach loves their roots music and proof of that can be found in the Rose Park Bluegrass Festival which, after 2 successful years, grew too big for the tiny park it gets its namesake from and has been cancelled for 2013. The Long Beach Folk Revival Festival aims to fill the hole left by the cancellation of the Rose Park Bluegrass Festival and give the community a quality event that showcases the best in Folk, Americana, Bluegrass, World, & Roots music.

Used Book Drive

Do you have old books on your shelves that you aren’t reading? You’re not alone! According to the EPA, more than 2 billion books are published each year and once read, many of these books sit unused on shelves, or in attics, closets, and garages.

Get your old books to new readers by bringing them to the Hughes & Longfellow Schools’ Book Drive. This event is held to celebrate America Recycles Day. Recycling begins with reuse — help a book reach a new reader!

Books for all ages are needed — books for babies to grandparents. Any number of books accepted — from 1 to 100!

Books are being collected for Goodwill to support its skills training and job placement services. Last year, Goodwill provided services for more than 6,400 people, trained 1,888 and placed 230 people in competitive employment.

Diana: Legacy of a Princess

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Queen Mary’s premier attraction Diana: Legacy of A Princess, curated by the Pink Ribbons Crusade, will be expanded.

Beginning October 11, the revitalized exhibit will present nineteen garments worn by Princess Diana. For a limited time, fashion that captured the world’s attention will again be on public display.

The elaborate Diana gallery chronicles the House of Windsor’s public and private lives, from personal artifacts and family heirlooms to newspaper articles, photographs and more. Princess Diana changed the face of British royalty forever and appropriately takes center stage in this inspired collection. The expanded showcase is a panorama of fashion worn by Diana from 1980 to 1995 – an ode to the woman whose charitable spirit, grace and compassion endeared and inspired.

The limited time exhibit will feature:

  • The crushed-velvet Bruce Oldfield gown chosen for the 1986 official royal portrait
  • The Grace Kelly-inspired Catherine Walker gown that lit up the red carpet at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival
  • The modern Catherine Walker creation that perfectly paired with the Spencer Family Tiara for the 1991 Official Tour of India
  • The short Versace black dress worn to the 1995 Apollo 13 Premiere – representative of the new look Princess Diana embraced during her final years
  • Other iconic pieces worn by Princess Diana…

Exhibit open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and open Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Last entrance allowed one hour prior to closing.
