Music in the Meadows - Grass Valley Event

This Saturday there's a great event in Grass Valley, CA to support Animal Place, a local animal sanctuary.

I've been to Grass Valley several times over the past 15 years, as one of my best friends lives there. (Allison's Gourmet is also located there!) It's such a magical place. The town is adorable and the people are always pleasant and oh-so-laid-back in that northern California kind of way. of all, John Robbins will be there! He'll be discussing the impact factory farming has on sustainability and the earth. There will also be bands, a silent auction + lots of great vegan food. Here are the details...

Pre-order your tickets and receive a FREE goodie bag full of donated treats and gifts from our generous sponsors, exhibitors, and supporters!

What to Bring:
Blanket or portable lawn chair: Enjoy the music and food in the meadow on your own blanket or chair. Some picnic tables will be available but may fill up quickly, so please bring your own blanket or chair.
Water bottle: Vendors will be selling food and beverages, but we encourage you to save cups and bring your own water bottle.
Camera: Take pictures! Take any good ones? Email us!
Clothing:  Hats/Closed toed shoes are required to hang out with the cows and big pigs!
Cash: Bring some for food, vendors, and our silent auction (we also accept checks/credit cards)
Who/What NOT to Bring:
Companion animals: Leave your companion animals at home. Do not leave any animal unattended in a vehicle. Many animals at the sanctuary are afraid of or potentially aggressive to dogs, and no one can predict how dogs will react to farm animals in a hectic, raucous environment. For everyone's safety, please leave companion animals at home.
Food: There is no need to bring your own food! Food vendors will be selling tasty vegan food. If you have young children or are on a special diet, please ensure the food you bring is vegan (no animal products including meat/fish/chicken, dairy products, eggs, honey) out of respect for the rescued farm animals.
