Join us for the
San Joaquin River Faire
At Lost Lake Park
August 21, 2010
A FREE community festival celebrating the restoration of the San Joaquin River and the eventual return of the native Chinook salmon.
Revive the San Joaquin is hosting the San Joaquin River Faire at Lost Lake Park on Saturday, August 21st. The event will have live music, food, fishing, canoeing, environmental education booths, and other river-friendly recreational opportunities. Your participation will help to promote a new spirit of connection and interaction with our wonderful river. Event partners will showcase healthy living, river recreation, and local environmental activities going on in your community.
The event will feature live music from local, salmon-friendly bands. Canoe safety training will be provided for those who wish to paddle the river. Come learn about the progress of the San Joaquin River Restoration Program, the Lost Lake Master Plan, and other major issues affecting the river. It will be hot so bring a swimsuit and chairs to enjoy the music under the trees on the banks of the San Joaquin River. Dogs must be leashed and camping is available through reservations with Fresno County.
The event is FREE with your admission to the park, and we are currently seeking sponsors to help offset costs for the event. If you or your organization is interested in sponsoring or participating with a booth please contact Revive the San Joaquin at (559) 226-0733 for more details.
