This year the muse was revealed on January 30 at Goldstein’s Mortuary and Delicatessen. The Muse for the 2018 Rogue Festival is “St. Fabel with Baby” by Fresno photographer Victor Trejo.

Nykole Sullivan and her mom Terry Hibbs put together a bistro where artists can express their passion. Nykole’s husband Bob says that their bistro is “a family restaurant first, but you come here for the music.” All fourteen indoor tables are in line with the stage as a focal point. New speakers and a stage that fits over the outside fountain in the patio area brings the entertainment outdoors as well.

Yes, folks, it’s time for Fresno’s Rogue Festival, ten days of music, dance, confessional stories, and cheerful insanity…and it’s cheap, too (Show tickets are $5 and $10, plus a $3 festival-funding wristband). Thursday night was the kickoff event, the Rogue Teaser. Thirty solo performers and groups gave two-minute previews to a large and rowdy crowd, like a commercial break on a cable channel, with Blake Jones and Jonathan Hogan as the jovial hosts.

Reedley was just a teenager of 15 years when Jesse Jansen raised the curtain on opening night in 1903 at the brand new Opera House. But in just those few short years leading up to this gala event, so much had happened that it warrants a look further back into Reedley’s history.
