Top of Folsom


Food? Wine? Art? Sound good? Then head to Folsom’s Historic District this Saturday evening, Sept. 15, for the Top of Folsom.

Sip wines from 20 Northern California wineries and sample the cuisine from 15 area restaurants, all while enjoying art (available for purchase), music and performing arts. Licensed contractors Jake and Joel Moss, Doug Tolson, and Terrence Martin of DIY Network’s “Yardcore” fame will be creating an urban sculpture on the spot. And Karen Holmes from Folsom’s Karen’s Bakery Cafe will be creating—and tossing—a super-sized salad.

The thing I like best about this event: It’s being held on a rooftop—the upper level of a four-story brick parking structure on Leidesdorff and Reading streets—giving you a panoramic view of the city. And by the way, that salad that Holmes is tossing? She’s tossing it from one floor of the structure to the next. Cool!

The event runs from 6 p.m.–9 p.m. Tickets are $75. For tickets and more information, including information on parking (complementary valet parking is available), click here. Top of Folsom benefits the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary (expect a special appearance by some of the zoo’s residents) and the Folsom Historic District.
