Golden Harvest Festival and Parade comes to Sacramento

The event combines cultures from around the world in a vibrant mix of music, dance and food.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Unity, harmony and peace are the themes of Sacramento’s first-ever Golden Harvest parade and festival this weekend.

The event combines cultures from around the world in a vibrant mix of music, dance and food.

“We want people to understand each other…so that we can compromise and create a peaceful society,” said Wei Zhang, chairman of the Golden Harvest Festival and Parade.

That’s the goal of this weekend’s inaugural festival. 20 groups – including a lion dance, a drum line and martial arts – from different cities and neighborhoods in our region will participate in the event.

“We want to build a platform to unite all ethnic groups,” Zhang said.

After two years of COVID, organizers say there is an avid appetite to see live events again.

“People need a chance to break free and have fun,” Zhang said. “Understanding each other, helping and supporting each other, and building a beautiful Sacramento.”

Here is some of what awaits you tomorrow: a traditional Chinese dance and a Brazilian band, more than 50 festival vendors and many different dishes.

There will also be a children’s art competition on the theme of unity, harmony and peace.

The Golden Harvest Parade will take place on Saturday, October 29 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Capital Mall. The festival takes place at Old Sacramento State Historic Park from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
