Rockin’ Out in the Redwoods

Hidden away in Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve in Guerneville is an amphitheater encircled by towering ancient trees. This is the site of the annual Old Grove Festival. A fundraiser for Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, this year’s festival will feature the country, Americana sounds of the Sam Chase and the Untraditional; the folk-blues harmonies of the Rainbow Girls; the indie rock of Alex Bleeker (of Real Estate); and the silky voice of pop artist Jay Som. Concerts will be held September 14 and 15, 4:30–9 p.m. General one-day admission is $40–$95. One child up to age 10 gets in free per one paid adult; otherwise, admission is $10 for each child.
