Friends of Folsom Flower Festival a Great Success!

Great Turn out Even with a Venue Change on Short Notice

The Friends of Folsom hosted a vibrant and successful Friends of Folsom Flower Festival on April 20th, raising over $10,000 for their annual Sacramento Food Bank Thanksgiving Turkey drive. The event, held at the Orangevale Grange, brought together the community for a day filled with lively reggae music, delicious food and drinks, and family-friendly fun.

Due to permitting and other requirements, the festival was moved, on only a few weeks notice, from Folsom to Orangevale.

The team got the word out, and over 400 attendees enjoyed the festivities, which included games, activities, and a strong showing from over 50 volunteers and vendors. In addition to a lineup of mostly reggae artists, which included Pato Banton and the Island of Black and White, the event featured the annual “Fools Games”, which helped boost their fundraising efforts significantly.

“It was a blooming good time!” exclaimed a spokesperson for the Friends of Folsom. “The positive energy and community spirit were truly heartwarming. We’re so grateful to everyone who came out to support this important cause.”

Due to the event’s overwhelming success, the Friends of Folsom are looking forward to making the Flower Festival an annual tradition. This event not only provides a fun day for the community but also allows them to contribute to their Thanksgiving turkey drive, ensuring a brighter holiday season for families in need. congratulates Jeff, Sarah, Woody and the rest of the crew at Friends of Folsom.
