19th annual BBQ & Blues in Auburn, CA

The 19th annual BBQ & Blues is set to kick off at 1:00 p.m. on July 12 at the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn, CA. Headliners of the festival are Koko Taylor and her Blues Machine, as well as Coco Montoya and Cole Fonseca and the Rattlers. Besides the awesome lineup, the festival has another thing going for it-- it helps fund the Placer County SPCA, which in turn helps homeless companion animals throughout the County.

At the 1:00 gate time, festivalgoers will get access to hot local talent as well as more than 35 vendors selling food, arts and crafts, jewelery, and, in spirit with the festival's cause, pet-related items.

Tickets cost $25 if bought in advance and are $35 at the gate. Tickets can be obtained through the Placer SPCA either online or by calling either of two numbers, (916) 782-7722 ext. 102 or (530) 885-7387 ext. 102.
