Too many cities, towns, and neighborhoods in this country are just that. But Fresno is a community. Fresno is large, and it is made up of many diverse areas. Fresno never loses sight of the fact that we are a community. We share our lives with others. We join them in good times and grieve with them in bad times. Throughout the year, many community events bring people together to celebrate the city. While we welcome visitors and tourists with open arms, these events are aimed at keeping our community strong. Below you will find just a few events that are coming soon. We encourage you to do some research and find other events that you would enjoy. We will be waiting for you!
