There will be many fun activities in the district after the parade to continue the celebration!

Join the Fun!


Mark your calendar for Historic Folsom’s Hometown Parade, our community’s own old-fashioned parade.

The Historic District is known as the heart of Folsom, rich in history and bursting with charm and each year we have a colorful assortment of entries participate including color guards, organizations that preserve our history, amazing vintage cars, floats and entries from different Folsom neighborhoods, excitement with police and fire, and a lot of surprises!

Parade-goers will line the four blocks of historic Sutter Street. The parade will take the route down Sutter St from Scott St to Decatur St.

2021 Grand Marshall - Claudia Cummings


Claudia Cummings has been an active community and civic leader in the Folsom area for many years.

Most notably, she and her late husband William donated a good deal of land to the City of Folsom including the bike trail on Creekside Drive along with the Cummings Family Park and Skate Park. She also donated a portion of the land that Mercy Hospital of Folsom resides on and assistance to the building of The Cummings Emergency Pavilion.

Event Entries


The Historic Folsom Hometown Parade is a hit with residents and surrounding communities. Historic Folsom is the perfect backdrop to celebrate what makes our community special. This hugely successful and highly supported event will be held June 26, 2021.

Planning is underway by residents and local business owners. The planning committee is now accepting entries to participate. We are looking for colorful, enthusiastic groups, organizations, and neighborhood floats. 

Past entries included Folsom City Council members, zoo docents, Folsom Police and Folsom Fire, the Pony Express, Karen’s Bakery and Café, the Old West Legends, the Vista del Lago dance team, Folsom High School Championship Football Team, Winnie the Sutter Street pig and many, many more.

The parade is open to all to participate with no more than 25 people per group in the parade. Of course, groups can have more members cheering them on from the crowd.

Now is the time to start planning and deciding if your group would like to have a presence in this new community tradition.
