Revive the San Joaquin is hosting the San Joaquin River Faire at Lost Lake Park on Saturday, August 21. 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.
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, and instructors will be on hand to teach fishing techniques.
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, contact Revive the San Joaquin at 559-226-0733 for more details.
