Dozens of locals gathered at the Eureka Theater on Saturday to watch the unveiling of this years’s Redwood Coast Music Festival poster and Tuba Christmas. Normally held at the Gazebo in Old Town, the weather forced this year’s installment indoors.
Board members of the Redwood Coast Music Festival took the stage first to unveil this year’s poster designed by local artist Duane Flatmo. Flatmo has designed 22 of the 26 posters for the festival which runs March 31st through April 3rd this year. The festival has been raising money for local senior and music programs for 26 years.

Tuba Christmas, led by Fred Tempas, took the stage following the unveiling. The local version of the now international event is in it’s 28th year. Tuba Christmas and the poster unveiling have been a combined event for the past several years.
