Citrus Heights has a history of City sponsored events even before Cityhood. City and community events create a sense of unity, a quality of life to the community and most importantly a great time!

The event takes place at Rusch Park and consists of a car show, live music, food trucks, beer garden and free swim in the Rusch pool.
