The Burly Backyard BBQ is back for its third installment with a jam-packed day of all-ages fun. Do you like local music? Great, because the lineup for this event is stacked: Separate Spines, Epsilona, Pets, Blue Oaks and Sacto Storytellers will all perform, with DJ Eve kicking off the live music at 2 p.m. as well as spinning tunes in-between each act. Lisa Elias, Tate Peterson, Marie Nudi, Maddy Smith and Ramos Smith will also provide live and installation art pieces. Additionally, there will be arts and crafts, face painting and other activities for children, and cornhole, ladder golf and a photo booth for the young at heart. Hmm, and what else … Oh yeah! Great food and drinks! Sounds like a great way to spend a spring Saturday afternoon into early evening. The Burly Backyard BBQ will run from 2–8 p.m. and the admission is FREE (though food and drinks will be available for sale). Burly Beverages is located at 2014 Del Paso Blvd. in Sacramento.
