1. Kids Day in the Park
Hosted each April by the Cordova Community Council, Kids Day in the Park is full of free activities for families in Hagan Park. Geared toward children 12 years and younger, the festival includes games, rides, and crafts—think face painting, play areas, and a bike rodeo—along with food and drink vendors. Kids Day in the Park serves as a health and resources fair for families with free parent resources and providers on-site holding vision, hearing, and dental checks. The 2023 Kids Day in the Park, "All Aboard!" will take place on Saturday, April 29.
2. International Festival (iFest) & Wines of the World
Each May, the Rancho Cordova community comes together to celebrate its ethnic diversity and invite newcomers to share their cultures. Located at Village Green Park, the family-friendly iFest features international food, drink, dance, music, and art at no cost. Wines of the World is the 21-and-over portion of the evening, with wine tastings from six continents (tickets available online or at the event). The 2023 iFest & Wines of the World, "It's a Small World After All," will take place on Saturday, May 13.
