Michael Chisholm, the vaudeville duo of Evans & Rogers, Vincent Johnson, Brad Kay, Bob Pinsker, Ryan Wishner and banjo player Jimmy Green. Returning from last year are three current or former Disneyland Coke Corner pianists: Andrew Barrett, Paul Orsi and Johnny Hodges. The Out of Tuners, a six-piece ragtime band, will be making its festival debut. Pianist and composer John Reed-Torres is also on the bill for the first time since RagFest 2012, and RagFest's founding artistic director, Eric Marchese, will MC the revue show and contribute some solo piano.

All attendees of RagFest 2018 are encouraged to get into the spirit by wearing ragtime-era garb

When the Orange County Ragtime Society was born in late 2001, Steamers was selected as the primary meeting place. In 2017 the festival moved to Brea and from October to September.

First launched in the fall of 2000, RagFest Southern California's only annual festival of ragtime music has grown from just a few hours at a single venue to an entire weekend of ragtime fun! Past festivals have included Ian and Regina Whitcomb, The Heliotrope Ragtime Orchestra, Brad Kay and Those Syncopating Songboids, ragtime vocalist Erika C. Miller, pianist extraordinaire Andrew Barrett, and many more!
