The Annual Tricycle Music Fest kicks off October 6th

It's the time of year again when the best kindie rockers come out to support local libraries and promote early childhood learning. The annual Tricycle Music Fest is a month-long event presented jointly by the San Francisco Public Library and San Mateo County Libraries. Together we bring the best kindie rock to Bay Area families. Don't miss this all-star line-up, including Red Yarn, Jazzy Ash and the Leaping Lizards, Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights, and Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band.

Each event will feature a concert and family engagement activities. And because playing is just as important as singing in early childhood learning, we will be raffling off one tricycle to a lucky concert goer at each event.

Skip the nap, grab your dancing shoes, and get to these unforgettable shows in October!
