KCBX Tent and Live Oak Mercantile


To celebrate 25 years of Live Oak, we're offering a fabulous array of items for bid at the Spectacular Silver Silent Auction. When you come to the Mercantile Tent to buy your Live Oak shirts, hats, etc., plan to spend some time in the Auction Annex. You can bid on this year's original poster art by Janet Allensbach, gift certificates, event tickets, wines, original art works, crafts, jewelry, and more. We will be doing things a little differently this year by closing the auction in four sections giving you even more opportunities to bid. Announcements will be made prior to the closing of each section but you will want to check back often to make sure you have not been out-bid on something you really want!


Bidding: Friday 9:30AM-9:00PM and Saturday 9:30AM-8:30PM

Closing Times: Closing times for all four sections are on Saturday afternoon and evening: 12:45; 3:30; 5:15; and 8:30 p.m.

Purchase and Pickup: Saturday a half hour after each closing and Sunday 9:30AM-6:00PM
