Bluegrass, Bidding & BBQ | The Palladium Society's 13th Annual Silent Auction

Presented by Jaguar Land Rover Columbia

Join Historic Columbia’s The Palladium Society (TPS) at the 13th annual Bluegrass, Bidding & BBQ fundraiser presented by Jaguar Land Rover Columbia. This annual celebration of live music, delicious barbecue, specialty drinks and an assortment of silent auction items will be held from 7-10 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20 on the grounds of the Robert Mills House & Gardens, located at 1616 Blanding Street in downtown Columbia.

This year’s silent auction will feature a variety of items, including destination packages to historic cities across the Southeast, experiential packages to explore local cultural sites, behind-the-scenes tours of Columbia’s hot spots, gift cards to restaurants, boutiques, gyms and much more. 

The Mustache Brothers will headline the evening with bluegrass classics and modern favorites. Hailing from Columbia, the Mustache Brothers have developed a widely respected following and have played for various audiences across South Carolina.

Delicious barbecue and other food varieties, including an enticing pickled vegetable bar, will be catered by Yellow Dog Barbecue, a local caterer focusing on creative ways to share barbecue, southern cuisine and craft sauces. Guests can enjoy an open bar, as well as a specialty cocktail prepared by Bourbon. Food and beverages are included with ticket purchase.

Ticket prices are $20 for TPS members, $30 for Historic Columbia members and $40 for the general public. Tickets are $40 at the door. All proceeds will support Historic Columbia. 

Please note: Bidr is experiencing some technical difficulties, which is causing issues for some while trying to purchase tickets.  Please try to purchase your tickets from a mobile device, if possible, as that seems to be working the best at the moment.  We are working with Bidr to get this corrected ASAP.  If you are still experiencing issues, please email Lauren at
