If you’ve ever wondered where your food comes from, you should check out the admission-free Farm-to-Fork Festival this Saturday from 11am to 6pm at the Capitol Mall in Sacramento. With a focus on local food and drink, this event will feature delicious fare from regional eateries and producers, along with live music, five cooking demonstration stages, interactive booths hosted by local grocers, farms, and ranches, a kid’s zone, and more. To get to Farm-to-Fork, just take Capitol Corridor to the Sacramento Station, and then walk or take the light rail to the 7Th and Capitol Station.

Bay Area Blues Festival: Martinez, September 26 & 27

Blues Festival

Head to historic Downtown Martinez for good music and good times at the Bay Area Blues Festival, one of the few remaining free Blues Festivals in Northern California. With Blues music on two stages, arts and crafts, gourmet food booths, craft beer and fine wines, a Farmer’s Market, community booths, hands on kid’s activities and rides, and a street painting artist, this admission-free event has something for everyone.
