Folsom Parks & Recreation Special Events

Folsom Parks & Recreation hosts numerous special events every year, the majority of which are family-focused and often fitness related. We pride ourselves on producing events that deliver a fun and memorable experience in a well-organized format. Folsom Parks & Recreation special events benefit Folsom residents and the community by reinforcing family bonds, encouraging friendships, and promoting health and wellness. We encourage all residents to get involved, either through participation or as one of our valued corps of volunteers!
