In May 2025, FOLFAN will present the first annual Izzy’s Animal Rescue Festival!

We’re looking forward to bringing this new community event to our state park (at Black Miners Bar in Folsom). We expect it to interest animal lovers of all ages as they discover how they can make a positive difference in the lives of domestic and wild animals by engaging with real animals and organizations dedicated to rescuing, adopting, rehabilitating, and sheltering animals in need.

The festival will include informative speakers, educational exhibitors, support organizations for both domestic and wild animals, and adorable pets searching for their forever homes.
Witness the beauty of wild education animals and grab some yummy bites from our vendors while enjoying live music in a beautiful lakeside environment.

Check back as we add more information to this web page about this exciting event dedicated to our furry, scaled, and feathered friends!

Izzy’s Animal Rescue Festival is a tribute to Isabelle “Izzy” Cassio, an ardent animal lover and dedicated volunteer who lost her life at age 25 in a tragic accident in the Highway 50 construction nightmare.
