It all began in the 80s ...

The Redwood Mountain Faire started in the early 1980s as a way to feature the talent of local artists, and musicians, in a community event that would benefit local charities as well. It was extraordinarily successful for 18 years, and became the model for other festivals, including the Strawberry Music Festival. After a hiatus of many years, the community wanted it back, so back it came in a remarkable rebirth, at a beautiful new venue, Roaring Camp (thanks to Georgie Clark), in June, 2010.


help us raise $250,000 for local charities!

Since its return in 2010, we have raised over $238,000 total ($40,000 alone was raised at last year’s event!) and with your help.

Attendees enjoy 22 bands over the weekend, a meadow filled with booths featuring the work of local artists, and delicious food and drink from Santa Cruz County vendors. 

Recognized by the State Assembly and the County of Santa Cruz for our contributions to the well-being of our community, you can be sure your tickets support a good cause in addition to a roaring good time for the whole family!
