Santee Bluegrass Festival
The city of Santee’s annual bluegrass festival returns with bands the Vulcan Mountain Boys and MohaviSoul.

Since its conception, the event has generated more than $250,000. Libations will be available for sampling from more than 35 restaurants, 20 breweries, and a dozen wineries. Tickets are $50 for general admission, or $35 for designated drivers. Go to bit.ly/SanteeBluegrass for tickets and information. Read More
