Ain’t Necessarily Dead Music Festival
Starts at noon July 14
Auburn Regional Park

Calling all Dead heads: It’s almost time for Auburn’s Ain’t Necessarily Dead Music Fest.

The outdoor music festival will have bands performing tunes in the style of The Grateful Dead. The festival will have two stages of music, a main stage and a smaller stage. The smaller one will have local bands and talent.

The event is hosted by Auburn Recreation District and will feature a kids’ zone with bounce houses and other children’s activities.

For the older ones, a beer garden will be pouring local brews. Pair that craft beer with something from one of the food trucks that will be on hand offering a variety of eats from pho to Italian ice.

Craft vendors will be showing off their creations as well.

The event is similar to ARD’s Party in the Park which takes place June 15 and is also no charge to attend.

“It is a also a great way to enjoy our parks, and to gather with friends — Something the Auburn Area Recreation and Park District supports,” the event’s website said.
