Event Description
The Northern California Blues Festival, this year featuring headliners Janis Joplin's first band, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and Kenny Neal, is a first class family friendly blues event. We're dedicated to bringing the best in the blues to you while raising money for and awareness of local charities. This year's event's featured beneficiary is the Auburn Recreation District Youth Assistance Program, providing anonymous financial assistance to qualifying families for the purpose of enrolling their children into quality sports, arts, and educational programs offered by the District.

The venue seating is a grassy, partially shaded natural amphitheater. Come early to claim a spot in the shade! To help beat the August heat, there will be four large twin-fan misting towers placed in the food/vendor areas.

Blankets are ideal for sitting on the gentle slope of the amphitheater, while blankets and low-back chairs (shorter than 30"" tall) are equally as appropriate for the flat ground.

VIP ticket holders for 2011 will have access to the shaded VIP seating area at the top of the amphitheater, the air-conditioned indoor VIP lounge and bar, brick-and-mortar bathrooms, and VIP parking (parking area limited to the first 80 cars of VIP ticket-holders). VIPs can expect special "meet-and-greet" opportunities with the artists in the VIP seating area and lounge throughout the event.

There will be a free Kids Zone on Saturday, August 6th from 11AM to 8PM with inflatable water rides to keep your children cool and climbing structures to keep them challenged.

Food, craft and merchandise vendors will be on hand and will accept cash for payment.There will be at least one ATM onsite.

Beer, margaritas, and wine will require script for payment, as a portion of the proceeds from sale of these items go to charity.

Unliimited free high-quality drinking water will be provided to "fill your own" cups, sports bottles, etc.

Limited free public parking is available along the street and in the Regional Park's various parking lots.

Private parking will be available at Parkside Church, directly across the street from the event entrance, for a suggested donation of $4 to the church.

Wristbands will be provided and you will have in and out privileges for the entire day.

For security reasons, your festival wristbands must be worn throughout the event.
