Skull and Roses is a celebration of community, a community generated by the music of the Grateful Dead.  Our music.

Somebody asked Uncle John what being a Dead Head was all about.  He smiled and said, “When you want to be fully alive, an individual but also tied at the heart within a rich, vibrant family, somebody who wants to have a lot of fun and probably dance, too – then you’re a Dead Head.”

The music of the Grateful Dead returned to the Ventura Fairgrounds en masse as 48 bands played on three stages for three days, all playing Dead related covers. The Skull and Roses Festival was organized partially to celebrate the legendary concerts by the original Grateful Dead, back in the 1980’s.
