Join us for the largest farm-to-fork event of the year — the second-annual Farm-to-Fork Festival on Capitol Mall in Downtown Sacramento.

Experience the best of the Sacramento region’s abundant food selection by sampling produce, meat, fish, wine, craft beer, cheese, olive oil and a wide array of everything related to farm-to-fork eating.

Designed to showcase where our food and drinks come from, the free 2014 Festival promises to be bigger and better than last year’s festival, which drew 25,000. With more food trucks, restaurants and expanded kids’ activities including a petting zoo, this year’s festival is packed with fun activities.

A live music stage will feature bands including The Family Crest and Trebuchet. At the other end of Capitol Mall, a demonstration stage will showcase chef demonstrations, presentations about food from organizations such as the Food Literacy Center and even a demonstration by everyone’s favorite California Agricultural inspector: a black Labrador retriever named Dozer — who will also be signing autographs all day.
