Rotary Club of Historic Folsom Announces
The 2016 International Culinary Festival
Folsom, CA, January 25, 2016 -- The Rotary Club of Historic Folsom announces the 5th annual International Culinary Festival on Sunday, March 20, 2016. The event will be held at the Folsom Community Center, 52 Natoma Street, from 3 to 6 pm. The festival will feature over a dozen local restaurants serving delicious samples of a variety of ethnic foods to take your taste buds on a world tour. The event will also feature a wine garden, entertainment, a silent auction and international costume fun.
The International Culinary Event is unlike any other in the Sacramento region. You will sample world-class cuisine from Folsom’s Finest Restaurants such as Bacchus House, Folsom Tap House, Land Ocean, Visconti’s Ristorante, La Rosa Blanca, ARZ Lebanese Restaurant and many more. “The International Culinary Festival offers a passport to taste international food and beverages available in our own town—and it’s very affordable for the whole family,” said Mary Asay-Skiles, Event Chair. Tickets are $25.00 per person for adults, children 12 and under are $10.00 each. Tickets are available through any member of the Rotary Club of Historic Folsom or online at www.folsomculinaryfestival.com.
Rotary Club of Historic Folsom President, Ken Sheffer, on behalf of the International Culinary Festival committee is very pleased to announce Sacramento County Sheriff, Scott Jones, as the Master of Ceremonies for the event. Sheffer is also excited to announce that “this year’s culinary festival will include a wonderful wine garden sponsored by Miraflores Winery, chef demonstrations and cake decorating. Plus, one lucky attendee will be awarded the door prize of $200 in dining certificates courtesy of Style Magazine.”
The International Culinary Festival is a fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Historic Folsom. Proceeds from the event benefit several local charitable programs supporting elementary school literacy, including: improving literacy for at-risk children at Folsom elementary schools, micro-libraries, and dictionary distribution to ALL Folsom third graders. In past years, the International Culinary Festival raised over $20,000.00 to support these important community programs. Check out www.historicfolsomrotary.org.

President's Message - September 2007

How many firsts are there in a month?  Most would respond, "Just one!"

But not the Rotary Club of Historic Folsom!  And it's not because our knowledge of the calendar is below par.  It's just we don't know when to stop having firsts.
