All You Need To Know To Go To The Brookdale Festival At Costanoa This Weekend

The Festival: The NEW Brookdale Bluegrass & Old Timey Festival At Costanoa continues the Brookdale festival tradition that dates back to 1998 at the old Brookdale Lodge. The 2013 event will be held at Costanoa Lodge just off of Highway One, near Pescadero in Coastside San Mateo County. The festival will be held on Friday-Saturday, March 8-9, and like all past Brookdale events, is welcomed by the NCBS!

Tickets will be available at the door beginning Friday afternoon.  The festival is not sold out; however, sales are excellent and it is possible that the only type of ticket that will be available for sale late in the day on Saturday will be  standing room only tickets, so early arrival and purchase is recommended.
