The 10th Annual Redwood Mountain Faire returns Saturday and Sunday, June 1& 2, to Roaring Camp in Felton. An amazing line-up of 22 bands on two stages, juried arts and crafts, memorable kids’ activities, and reasonable prices beckon all ages. Great food, inspired local micro-brews, wines & ciders, and entertainment surprises round-out the magic. The beauty of the expansive oak-shaded meadow, bordered by vendors’ booths, with its big stage, and the intimate Creekside Stage nestled among trees and picnic tables – all embraced by a redwood forest backdrop – enhance the unique experience. Faire-goers will find a favorite genre of music among bands with unique and exciting style blends, including The Brothers Comatose, The Main Squeeze, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Dustbowl Revival, Melvin Seals with The China Cats, Edge of the West, Jesse Daniel, Elliot Peck, Rainbow Girls, Soulwise LOCAL, One Grass Two Grass, and eleven more.
