East Sacramento Pops in the Park

Councilmember Jeff Harris and East Sacramento Chamber of Commerce present Pops in the Park 2022, Celebrating 30 years;


Councilmember Harris is very excited to continue the wonderful tradition of Pops in the Park, started by Councilmember Josh Pane and a number of community members in 1991 and elevated to a major event by his predecessor on the Council, Steve Cohn. Pops in the Park is an opportunity to raise money for our under-funded neighborhood parks while bringing free, quality entertainment to the community. Sponsorship and advertising dollars, as well as proceeds from the sale of food and beverages at the events, have been used since 1995 to fund this event, enhance our neighborhood parks, bring improvements to the neighborhood, and provide youth athletic scholarships.

After a 2 year hiatus, we are planning the 30th Anniversary of this treasured community event.
This year, we will have 2 east Sac concerts, June 18th at McKinley Park and June 25th at East Portal Park. We will also be hosting one concert in South Natomas on September 17th at the South Natomas Community Center Park.
It has been one of the great joys of my life to have played a role in bringing this event to our community since 2014. The Pops concerts allow us the opportunity to connect with old friends as well as make many new ones all while enjoying the beautiful parks our City has to offer. As I will not be running for re-election in the new Council District 3, this will be my last year coordinating these events as the District 3 Councilmember
In the next few weeks, we will reveal more about Pops, including the artwork for this year’s program. We are REALLY excited to announce this featured artwork, so please stay tuned.

Councilmember Jeff Harris
