Walnut Festival

Twilight Parade

At 6pm on Saturday, September 16, this year’s parade, themed “Yesterday and Today,” takes place on Main Street in downtown Walnut Creek and travels down to Civic Drive. The parade brings together local high school bands, business owners, and other community groups (by invitation only after applying) to create floats and entertainment that align with the theme and celebrate the public. The parade is free of charge.

 

The 81st Annual Walnut Festival will be held September 21 – 24

The Walnut Festival is a four-day festival with family-friendly entertainment, two stages of live music, a large carnival with more than 30 rides, kid zone, and a showcase of local and regional talent, including artists, craftsmen, designers, jewelers, builders, food specialties, craft beer garden, and more. The cost of admission is $10 per person (free for kids 5 and under, 65 or older, and active military, ID required). Bring a can of food for donation and the price is $9. Carnival rides require tickets. All you can ride wristband bracelets are available for use on Thursday and Sunday. Buy wristbands at www.thewalnutfestival.org. Festival hours: Thursday, 5-10pm; Friday, 5-11pm; Saturday, 11am-11pm; and Sunday, 11am-8pm.
