Visit Sacramento President & CEO Mike Testa says the new additions speak to the excitement around Sacramento’s culinary scene.  

“From the beginning, the Farm-to-Fork Festival was meant to shine a spotlight on the amazing food of this region,” said Testa. “These new experiences are reflective of how far the city has come over the last decade. We’ve seen Michelin award our local restaurants, new talent continue coming into the city, and continued interest in Sacramento from leaders in the food and entertainment space. We can’t wait to see where things can grow from here.”

The 10th anniversary of the Sacramento Farm-to-Fork Festival will also feature free concerts from Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Cannons, and more, beginning Friday, Sept. 22 on Capitol Mall.

Also performing will be Danielle Ponder, Cautious Clay, Eric Gales, and Zia Victoria, as well as a lineup of local bands and DJs.

Visit Sacramento’s Farm-to-Fork Festival was created in 2013 as a celebration of the region’s food and agriculture, and a chance to introduce people to the chefs, farmers, ranchers, vintners and brewers who are bringing food and drinks to our table every day. Over the last decade, the festival has become one of the West Coast’s most anticipated food and music events. Find out more at
