The Redwood Mountain Faire is the ideal event, featuring talented musicians, juried fine arts and crafts, exciting children’s activities, delightful entertainment, and delicious varieties of fresh foods and beverages. To top it off, proceeds will benefit local nonprofit and community organizations! Volunteers are needed to support the VWC – especially YOU, your family and friends!!!

For 2013, The Faire announces an amazing line-up of 22 bands, featuring Coco Montoya, Wooster, Harpin’ Jonny & Larry Hosford, and Poor Man’s Whiskey — along with 18 other bands performing on two stages over two days. The Faire brings the community together on Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2, at beautiful Roaring Camp in Felton. Gates open at 10:30 and music starts at 11 – parking ($5) is available from 9:30 on. Grab your family and friends, come early and stay all day!!
A brand new Creekside Stage will provide audience space for the amazing performers on that stage. It and the beautiful Meadow Stage will provide a remarkable variety of music styles, from bluegrass and blues to classic rock, R&B, soul, reggae, and folk/Americana. All generations will be entertained.
The Faire also features fine and unique juried arts and crafts from over 30 gifted local artists, information booths for local non-profits, exciting children’s activities, entertainment throughout the site, delicious foods and beverages including Santa Cruz Mountains wines and brews from local micro-breweries – and some fun surprises each day (flash mob!! belly dancers!! cloggers!! balloon clown!! Aztec dancers!!) – for a true community event.
Saturday’s lineup will bring in the crowds to the Meadow Stage with Poor Man’s Whiskey, The Joe Craven Trio, Birds of Chicago, MoonAlice, The Coffis Brothers & the Mountain Men, and Carolyn Sills. On the newly configured Creekside Stage, the audience will be clapping hands, stomping feet and dancing to Harpin’Jonny & Larry Hosford, Mary McCaslin & Steve Palazzo, Vito & Friends, The McCoy Tyler Bands and the Steven Graves Band.
You’ll want to take advantage of discounted advance tickets for two-day attendance, because Sunday’s line-up is equally amazing. On the Meadow Stage Coco Montoya plays the Blues; earlier in the day The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit, Lacy J. Dalton, B-Side Players, Miss Lonely Hearts and Ancestree Reggae will thrill the crowd. On the Creekside Stage, Wooster will bring down the house; watch for a surprise performer, as well as Thrive, My Stupid Brother and The North Pacific String Band — so come early and don’t miss a thing!
Organizers know everyone will love the Faire, rain or shine, so take advantage of the special deals for tickets purchased in advance, such as 2 for $30. Day-of tickets are only $20 adult, $15 seniors/student and children 10 and under are free.
