Enjoy Barrels of Fun at the Beer, Bison & Bluegrass Fundraiser!

The Fourth Annual Beer, Bison and Bluegrass Fundraiser will make its way to the Fort Bragg area once again, and it’s expected to be another great year.

We have no doubt that they will keep the beer flowing, the music playing and the bison sizzling on the grill for your enjoyment.

Be sure to mark this event down in your calendar! On October 8th, this annual fundraiser event will kick off for Parents and Friends, a non-profit organization that allows adults with developmental disabilities to become involved in the local community. The organization strives to promote independence among each developmentally disabled adult, which is certainly a cause that we believe everyone could get behind.

What we and the rest of the Mendocino community love so much about this event is that aside from the wonderful cause you’re supporting, it won’t be just any old kind of food and drink you’ll be enjoying throughout the day.

As the name suggests, you can enjoy beer from local breweries, such as the famous North Coast Brewing Company, the Lost Coast Brewery and Mendocino Brewing to name a few.

As for the food, this triple B fundraiser features an organic bison burger BBQ, which (in our book) makes it a bit more special than your average burgers and brats event! Last but not least, for those with a sweet tooth, you don’t want to forget to grab yourself a tasty treat from Cowlick’s Ice Cream – a must-have any time you’re stopping through the Fort Bragg area!

After giving yourself plenty of time to digest all of that deliciousness, be sure to hit the dance floor and show off your best moves as you dance to the music of The Mendocino Quartet and the opening act, The Green Fields. Not much of a dancer? That’s OK! Just bob along as you buy your tickets and wait to see if your number is called for the raffle or silent auction. Who knows – you could walk away with the best prize of the night!

Ring in the fall by attending this amazing event for an even better cause!

All-inclusive tickets are $45 and tickets for music and food only are just $25. To ensure your weekend stay is full of fun and exciting adventures, be sure to book a room at Cleone Gardens Inn and enjoy all that the Fort Bragg area has to offer!
