Ride your bike or take light rail if possible - Fremont Park is just across from the 16th Street station - out of respect for the park's residential and business neighbors. Parking will be available, but limited. We'll have over two dozen vendors - some carts, some trucks and mobile grills - from the Sacramento region and Bay Area on hand to serve you, your family and friends a tasty and hopefully mellifluous afternoon of food and music.
