The Ain't Necessarily Fest is a true labor of love by many in the greater Auburn community who like to present incredibly great music to those who may not always be able to do so!  It is a also a great way to enjoy our parks, and to gather with friends - Something the Auburn Area Recreation & Park District (ARD) Supports

The Festival is located at ARD's Regional Park in North Auburn CA, not far off of Interstate 80.  The Park has been home for another annual event called Party in the Park which happens the 3rd Friday of Every June -  The location features a wonderful natural grass amphitheater that allows for plenty of room to stretch out and also dance.   There is a Main Stage that features a variety of music, and a little more intimate "Home Grown Stage" that features some incredible "local" talent -  

The ARD Staff has collected a great group of Food and Craft Vendors that sit atop the amphitheater - where one can find everything from Pho to Italian Ice!  The Crafts vary and are a ton of fun - you also can run into booths highlighting other fun in the community!

Craft Beer is a big part of the Fest, as not only do we have some great products to enjoy, the Brewers provide the beer to us allowing for this event to exist!  A big Thanks to the Auburn Ale House - Knee Deep Brewing Crooked Lane Brewing Moonraker Brewing and El Dorado Brewing, all wonderful Foothill Brewers who make some incredible product!


Don't Forget the GIANT KID ZONE!!  - This truly is a highlight for kids of all ages!!  Parents can sit on the hill and enjoy the music, while the kids can play and have fun in the Kid ZOne!!

Overall this is a fun way to spend a day in the Foothills - We hope you will come out and Enjoy!!
