Original 1st printing 19&7/8 x 25&7/8" silkscreen concert/event poster for the (Third Annual) Big Sur Folk Festival, held at Esalen Hot Springs in Big Sur, CA on 7/9-10/1966.
Artist unknown, poster lists festival participants: Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Mimi Fariña, Mark Spolestra, Malvina Reynolds, Al Kooper (Blues Project/Bob Dylan/BS&T) and Nancy Carlen (along with a panel discussion moderated by Ralph J. Gleason).
Medium-thick flat index stock hand-pulled silkscreen poster is in good (B/B-) condition; an 8" tear in the lower right corner, a few stray staple/tack holes, a 1" hole in the top right corner and several small tears have been (temporarily) repaired on the reverse with clear tape, along with a few tiny surface scuffs, a semi-flattened horizontal center crease, a light amount of moisture rippling and a few scattered stress bends here and there, otherwise it looks pretty decent overall.
VERY early Big Sur Festival poster from the third edition of the annual event. Check out another copy of this very same poster hanging in the window of Ron & Jay Thelin's Psychedelic Shop in 1966!
