Word is spreading that the Santee Bluegrass Festival is one community fund-raising event you don’t want to miss.
Aside from live music from two renowned bluegrass bands, attendees will have their choice of 16 varieties of wine, 13 micro-breweries and 29 food vendors.  There will be 88 silent auction items, ranging from beach-cruiser bicycles to airline tickets.

Those who purchase designated driver tickets for $25 at the door will receive an engraved water bottle donated by Az U Wish.  Three local cab companies will also have drivers available beginning at 9 p.m. at the main parking lot.  Standard rates of $2.80 plus $3 per mile will apply.

Online ticket sales for the event will end at midnight on Monday, Sept. 17.
After that, tickets can be purchased for $35 per person at Santee City Hall, 10601 Magnolia Ave., Building 6, up to 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21.

Tickets may be available at the door for $40 each, but the event is rapidly nearing capacity.
“Everything about the event is bigger and better this year, ” said Cherie Meek, the city’s special events supervisor.  “We’re expecting more than 700 people to turn out, have a fun time and help raise funds to support park improvement projects and the Santee Teen Center.”
