Kudos to the hundreds of volunteers that make the Redwood Mountain Faire a truly enjoyable and affordable community event, and enabling it, rain or shine, to provide funding to important local nonprofit, school and service organizations! To make it even better the Faire is offering discounted tickets on sale online (click here) and in local stores, including Scarborough Lumber in Ben Lomond and Boulder Creek, Liberty Bank in Felton, Scarborough Ace Hardware in Kings Village/Scotts Valley, and Street Light Records in Santa Cruz until Friday, June 1.
Everyone will find music to enjoy both days at the Faire! On two unique stages, Meadow and Creekside, headliners David Lindley, Sista Monica, SambaDá, Soft White Sixties, The Brothers Comatose and Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit join a total of 21 bands to please you all. The other bands demonstrate what an amazing abundance of talent we have locally! They include Moonalice, Extra Large, Dan P. and the Bricks, Sharon Allen with Henhouse, The Coffis Brothers and the Mountain Men, Red Beans and Rice, Funkranomicon, Wooster, Tater Famine, Take 1, Three Time Loser, 2 Up Front, Big Bambu, Pour House and Coffee Zombie Collective! You will love them all!
Along with the amazing lineup of bands, the Faire features unique and beautiful juried Arts & Crafts from remarkable local artisans, and expanded Children’s Activities including popular children’s musician, Freesia Raine, performing both days, a bounce house, arcade, fun crafts and face painting. You will enjoy the fantastic food, the brews from popular local microbreweries, Boulder Creek Brewery and Uncommon Brewers, and & the wines from excellent Santa Cruz Mountains’ wineries, Hallcrest Vineyards, Organic Wine Works, and Zayante Vineyards.
Volunteers should call Volunteer Coordinator, Linda Moore, at 831/566-7788, if they have any questions about their assignment. Check with Linda to see if any slots remain to be filled; with four hours of work you have free Faire admission that day (not free parking, however).
The Faire is a rain or shine event, with a new layout enhancing each Stage area and improving access to all features. Parking is $5 right next door to Roaring Camp, with van shuttles to the entrance running throughout the event (or you can walk). No dogs, please, and no coolers.
By the way, if you can come on Monday, June 4th, from 9 a.m. into mid-afternoon, we could sure use your help in the clean up!! Call Nancy Macy (345-1555) and let her know – or just show up at Roaring Camp that morning!
