About Us

Redwood Comedy Festival
Fortuna, California

Friday June 12th - multiple venues thought out the city of Fortuna, some venues Friday will be 21 & up, others will be 18+ .  Saturday June 13th – River Lodge Conference Center 18+ venue.

The Fortuna Business Improvement District will be hosting a comedy festival in the City of Fortuna as a fundraiser for the Business Improvement District. Last year we held a very successful eight (8) hour festival at the Fortuna River Lodge.
This year we would like to grow the event to a two day festival. We will feature 40+ comedians Friday night and Saturday 15+ comedians. We are still recruiting comedians to preform. Submission fee as of right now is $25.00 through April 27th!

Last year thanks to grants, sponsors, ticket sales and comedian submissions we just about broke even. This year we will be growing the festival with the hopes it will become a fundraiser for FBID. The funds raised will allow FBID funds to promote and market Fortuna, our businesses and our events. 

This year we will have multiple venues, throughout the city, host comedy shows on Friday night. The Redwood Comedy Festival will provide each venue with the comedians, emcee, security and volunteers to sell tickets. The Comedy Fest Committee will select comedians to perform Saturday for the BIG show at the River Lodge.

FYI - Fortuna Rotary's Art and Wine in the Park will take place on Sunday - incase you want to stay an extra night in Fortuna!
