Redwoods

Poncho Sanchez • Eric Marienthal • Tizer Quartet • Flo – Funky Latin Orchestra. Nothing like a magical afternoon to bring together a couple of thousand merrymakers who will head up the hill to the Woodminster Amphitheater to move and shake under a canopy of fragrant redwood trees. Come out and socialize, and share some homemade appetizers, and cut loose in the aisles with the upbeat tunes on September 20th.
