Visit Sacramento and Slow Food are joining forces to host Terra Madre Americas, the American version of the internationally acclaimed Terra Madre Salone del Gusto food conference. The Sacramento event will bring together food producers, scientists, cooks, and researchers to share ideas and learn more about slow wine, slow coffee and slow food.

 Participants will be able to explore three key Slow Food themes and learn from renowned experts at Terra Madre Americas.  The event is free to the public and will include educational and interactive experiences for all ages, with additional ticketed event opportunities for the chance to further expand the experience.

What is Slow Food?    Slow Food Logo

Slow Food Vision

We envision a world where everyone can eat food that is good for them, good for the people who grow it and good for the planet.

Slow Food Mission

We cultivate a worldwide network of local communities and activists who defend cultural and biological diversity, promote food education and influence policies in public and private sectors.


Memorial Auditorium will be transformed into Terra Madre Americas, where attendees can explore how food is interrelated with most aspects of our lives and environment, with specific focuses on the climate crisis, social justice and education in the food and beverage system through the lens of specific topics. 

Each area will present the main issues in human and planetary health through a series of activities involving audiences of all ages, giving voice to the Slow Food network and food system actors in ways that engage and excite the local community.

While the event is free, to further your understanding and education, ticketed experiences including masterclasses and tastings are available for purchase here.
