Johnny Cash Music Festival Comes to Ventura

Rockabilly romantics, country-loving couples and pairs who prefer punk will all flock to the Ventura County Fairgrounds on Father’s Day weekend for the third annual Johnny Cash Music Festival–a day-long salute in song to the Man in Black.


  • Budding Bettie Page’s will step into the styles of yesterday as they vie for first prize in the Pin Up Pageant.
  • Vintage vehicle enthusiasts will get revved up for the gallery of hot rods, Kustoms and motorcycles displayed on the fairgrounds.
  • Johnny Cash was an artist whose musical palette was colored with compositions from a variety of genres, and the festival in his honor will offer aural masterpieces from diverse performers. Providing the heartbeat to the summer’s hot happening will be punk pioneers X, country music king Kris Kristofferson, rockabilly rebel Lee Rocker (formerly of The Stray Cats) and a line up of artists who tend to the roots of rock ‘n’ roll, including The Blasters, Levi Dexter, Buzz Campbell, Hayden Thompson, Omar & the StringPoppers, Deke Dickerson and many more.

When: June 18, 2011
