The Westport Volunteer Fire Department is sponsoring its 41st Annual Fundraising Barbecue on Saturday, August 17, 2019 from noon to 9 p.m. on the Westport Headlands. Enjoy an afternoon and evening of fun, great food and live music while helping support the Westport Volunteer Fire Department. Admission is free. Live music will be provided by Lost Johnson Productions and Highway 1 Sound, featuring several great local performers including Mighty T-Bones, the Thorn Petals, Highway 1, Sue Sisk & Danny Barca, Erin Brazill & Derek DiOrio, Steven Bates, Calvin Turnbull and Sarah Flaim. There will also be an after-sunset dance party and light show. Our famous barbecue features barrel roasted tri-tip, chicken and a vegetarian option. Meal tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for kids under 10. Beer, wine and dessert can also be purchased. There will be plenty of fun activities for the whole family (sorry, no dogs). Many craft merchants will have their wares for sale. A beautiful quilt and several other great raffle prizes can be won. There will be a silent auction featuring Mendocino wines. Helicopters from Reach/CalStar, CalFire and CHP will be arriving and departing if weather and availability cooperate. The Westport Volunteer Fire Department provides year-round initial 911 emergency response service for medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents, traumatic injuries and fires on the Northern Mendocino Coast.
