Downtown San Rafael is the place to be this weekend, as locals celebrate the height of summer at the Great American Blues & Barbecue Festival. Local and national blues musicians like the Rt. Honorable Austin de Lone Little Big Band will take to the stage to honor Marin’s musical heritage with twangy guitar and toe-tapping rhythm. Enjoy food from local purveyors as well as — you guessed it — some serious barbecue fare, highlighted by a “King of the Q” competition.
