United Community Walk is the festivals network opening event, with local nonprofits, and hosted again by NAMI Stanislaus, and National Night Out, and may meander downtown, or possibly up the new Virginia Corridor Walking park. This is a Free All ages event, sponsor spots and vendor opportunities still open and needed to bring the best festival we can to Mancini Bowl, in beautiful Graceada Park bordering downtown Modesto. This year's art venue, will have more artists, throughout the festival area.
