The 46th Annual Muir Beach Volunteer Firemen’s Barbecue is a fun event for the whole family with delicious food, activities for the kids, and dancing to live music by local favorites Andre Pessis and his All-Stars and opening band Soul Ska. An annual Memorial Day Weekend tradition in Marin, the event this year takes place on Sunday, May 27, from noon to 5pm at Santos Meadows on Frank Valley Road. Just follow the signs from Muir Beach or Muir Woods.
The Firemen’s Barbecue is a festive gathering and fundraiser for the Muir Beach Volunteer Fire Department. 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, bounce houses, and a mechanical bull to tame.
Barbecue chicken and vegetarian fare lunches, hand-made 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.
