FOLSOM — The Folsom Historic District presents Top of Folsom, featuring food, wine, fine art and performances served up on a scenic rooftop in the heart of Historic Folsom, from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 15.

The evening includes live music and performance art. The stars of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Network’s “Yardcore” licensed contractors Jake and Joel Moss, Doug Toulson and Terrence Martin will be on hand to create an urban sculpture that will later be publicly displayed.

Karen Holmes of Karen’s Bakery Café will playfully demonstrate the art of making an enormous salad — super-sized and tossed in a most entertaining presentation.

Top of Folsom takes place on the upper deck of the Historic District’s four-story brick parking structure on Leidesdorff and Reading streets, offering guests panoramic views of the city.

Guests will also enjoy samples from the following local restaurants: Bidwell Street Bistro, Sutter Street Steakhouse, Karen’s Bakery Café, Source Global Tapas, Mulvaney’s B&L, Red Rabbit, Spataro, Hawks, Matteo’s Pizza & Bistro, and Bacon and Butter.

Wineries include local favorites like Pruett, Madroña, Boeger, Miraflores, David Girard, Skinner, Shadow Ranch, Bumgarner, Petra and Cielo. Napa and Sonoma wineries include Shrader, Trefethen, Trattore and Rutherford.

Track 7 Brewing Co. and Lockdown Brewing Company will serve beer.

Art will be available for sale at the event.

Top of Folsom benefits both the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary and the Folsom Historic District.

Tickets are on sale at TopOfFolsom.com for $65 through Aug. 31, then $75 in September.  They can be purchased at Historic Folsom merchants listed on the website. Price includes entrance to the event, wine tasting, food sampling and a commemorative wine glass. Valet parking is available.
