The Westport Volunteer Fire Department is sponsoring its Annual Fundraising Barbecue in celebration of its 40th Anniversary on Saturday, August 18, 2018 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 One Sound, featuring several great local performers including the Steven Bates Band, Sue Sisk, Mixxology, Lucky Otis, and the Thorn Petals. There will be an after-sunset dance party and lightshow featuring Highway One.
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. 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. Our response area covers roughly 108 square miles, from mile post 72 to the Usal Road turnoff on Highway 1.
