2016 event will now include more than a half-mile of food, wine, beer, exhibits and more
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The most-anticipated fresh-food party of the year will be back on Sacramento's Capitol Mall on Sept. 24, 2016, bigger and better than ever. After more than 50,000 people attended the Festival in 2015, Visit Sacramento will expand the event by an additional two city blocks, allowing more room for attendees to explore and additional exhibit space.
Visitors will find more than a half-mile of booths from area farms, ranches, restaurants and local businesses, along with beer and wine gardens, larger chef demo stages, food trucks, an interactive kid's area and more. National celebrity chef Rick Moonen will be amongst the culinary experts to hit the live demo stages, and musical acts will also perform throughout the afternoon, including headliner The Wallflowers.
The event remains admission free, with proceeds from Tower Bridge ticket sales going directly to fund a portion of the expanded Festival.
"The Farm-to-Fork Festival has been a can't-miss event from our first day on Capitol Mall in 2013," said Visit Sacramento President & CEO Steve Hammond. "The event's popularity is a true testament to the community's passion for food and agriculture, and we look forward to creating memorable experiences at the event for years to come."
The 2016 Farm-to-Fork Festival will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 24. Attendees are encouraged to use the City of Sacramento's Capitol Mall parking garage, or to consider public transportation. Free bike valet will also be available. More information is available at farmtofork.com.
