Returning to Downtown Sac’s Roosevelt Park is Sac Fry Fest. Saturday, May 11, SactoMoFo invites you to experience delicious creations by local chefs showing-off their special culinary talents with America’s favorite potato styling. From savory to sweet and all of the above, there will be some type of fry for every member of the family to enjoy. Vendors such as Buckhorn Grill, Bacon Mania, Che’s Urban Eats and more will be participating. There will be a loaded fry battle, and visitors will also be able to cast votes for the People’s Choice Favorite! With live music and fry-themed amusements, enjoy your day with a cold beverage or shop the local makers bazaar. No need to worry about the little ones; children will have their own Fry Fest interactive kids zone. Friends of Front Street Animal Shelter are partnering up with Sac Fry Fest to provide alcoholic beverages, with proceeds contributing to their work in the greater Sacramento area. And for those wondering if there will be vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and kids meal options available, we are here to tell you yes to all of the above. Brian Rogers will host while entertainment includes The Pressure Lounge, BlyueRose Dance Project, DJ FVME, and DJ ROBBIE (HOF). The event will start Saturday, May 11 at 3 p.m. Tickets range from $10–$25. Children 8 years old and under enter for free, and bring your furry friends because pets are welcome!
