The Auburn Rotary Club has announced this year’s Party In The Park Festival (formerly known as the Rotary Ribs Rhythm & Blues Festival) will run from July 23-24, 2022. It will take place on Deauville Island at Emerson Park in Auburn- the Club says it’s good to be back after cancellations in 2020 and 2021.
Party In the Park Festival is a paid admission food and music festival ($5.00 per adult, children 12 and under are free), and serves as a major fundraiser for the Auburn Rotary Club. The festival name change was made back in late 2019 to better reflect the essence of the event.
The Auburn Rotary club has been helping local youth, local community and veterans causes and contributions since 1915. Thousands of dollars are donated each year to different charities like Warm The Children, Nick’s Ride For Friends and other local organizations. Typically, Auburn Rotary aids and donates to 20-25 different local causes each year.
