MARYSVILLE, Calif. – Saturday is the last day of the Marysville Peach Festival. The two-day event had humble beginnings as a small street fair in 1999.
The Marysville Peach Festival was the original idea of Jody Sodaro of Sodaro Orchards, who worked with Andrew Coolidge of Coolidge Public Relations and the City of Marysville to create the event the very first year.
Since then the festival has become known throughout the state. It continues to be a large, free two-day street fair that is attended by approximately 30,000 people in the region.
Organizers said there is music, crafts and food vendors at the festival. Each food vendor is offering a peach item.
This year is the 20th year of the festival. Festivities are on D Street between First and Seventh streets in downtown Marysville until 4 p.m. on Saturday.
