City Works Day




Every year, the Public Works Department celebrates City Works Day to commemorate the achievements of Public Works in the daily lives of Folsom residents, as well as to celebrate and recognize public works endeavors in cities across the nation.

This year, Folsom's City Works Day will be held on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. The event is free and held at City Lions Park (next to the Folsom Public Library) between 9:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Please join us for the fun!

In addition to the Folsom Public Works Department, other city departments join in the City Works Day celebration to create a rich presentation of the City's services. Visitors at the event can learn about the functions of many City departments by meeting employees who will be hosting dozens of fun and interactive activities. A variety of City vehicles, such as fire and garbage trucks, a City bus and tractor (and more), will be on display, with some vehicles available for on-board exploration.

City Works Day is scheduled each year to support and usher in the American Public Works Association's (APWA) proclaimed "National Public Works Week," which is observed in May. In 2017, National Public Works Week is scheduled from May 21 through May 27.

As established by APWA, the 2017 National Public Works Week theme is captured by the phrase "Public Works Connects Us" and showcases the idea that public works plays a vital role in connecting residents and communities together; Public Works professionals build streets, roads and bridges to link us to one another and to ensure that the infrastructure in our cities helps support a higher quality of life.

City Works Day is a free annual event and is traditionally held on the third Wednesday of May. The event was formally known in Folsom as Public Works Day or Public Participation Day.
