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.

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 host dozens of fun and interactive activities. A variety of City vehicles, such as fire and garbage trucks, a tractor, police vehicles (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 2020, National Public Works Week is scheduled from May 17 through May 23.

As established by APWA, the 2020 National Public Works Week theme is captured by the phrase "The Rhythm of Public Works" and challenges our citizens to think about their communities as a symphony of essential services, working in concert to create a great place to live.

City Works Day is a free annual event and is traditionally held on the third Wednesday of May.
