The 48th Annual Muir Beach Volunteer Firemen’s Barbecue Fundraiser is a fun event for the whole family. Enjoy delicious food, groovin’ live music, tasty craft beers, premium wine and a whole lot of fun for the family.
Join the celebration on Sunday, May 24 from noon to 5 pm at Santos Meadows on Frank Valley Road.
The Firemen’s Barbecue is a festive gathering and fundraiser for the Muir Beach Volunteer Fire Department and a favorite Memorial Day Weekend tradition in Marin. Keeping the nearly-50-year tradition going, local favorites Andre Pessis and his All-Stars will be back to get the spirited crowd on the dance floor with their classic rock and R & B tunes. Eight-piece funk band The Humidors will kick off the afternoon with their brand of hard-hitting funk, greasy soul, vintage R&B, soul jazz and more.
Some of Marin and the Bay Area’s best musicians will rock the stage while Muir Beach firefighters and community members tend to smoky grills. Sought after raffle prizes are offered and, for the kids, there is a special play zone with climbing walls and bounce houses.
Barbecue chicken and vegetarian tamale lunches, handmade desserts, plus sodas, beer and wine will be available for purchase, as are clothing and other items featuring the famous Muir Beach Volunteer Fire Department iconic dog logo. The day’s activities end with a raffle of more than 100 prizes that include fantastic accommodations, airline tickets and gift certificates from popular Bay Area and beyond restaurants and attractions.
Parking is $25 per vehicle; carpooling is encouraged.
