Event Description:
REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED.

In 1895, the Sacramento Metro Chamber saw the promise of our valley and encouraged members to write to relatives and friends, boasting of the richness of our soil and offering assistance to come settle the land to help develop Sacramento. Since the early settlers, agriculture has been a staple for our economy and one that today, continues to put our region on the map. 

As the Farm-to-Fork capital, the Sacramento region doesn't just embrace the fruits of it's labor, we celebrate them. Join us as we explore agriculture's economic footprint in our region and the growing impact it can have in our community.
