A Community Celebration at SnakeFest for World Snake Day

In celebration of World Snake Day, on July 15 Save The Snakes held our second annual Sacramento Snake Festival!

This free, family friendly event raised local awareness for the snake conservation efforts of Save The Snakes and celebrated our amazing snake neighbors! Hundreds of people from all over California came out to show their support.

SnakeFest was a full, fun day of smiles and scales!

Despite the hot, summer weather, 369 community members attended SnakeFest, ~$6,000 was raised for snake conservation efforts, and tens of thousands learned about the event on social media and through the local news (Good Day Sacramento, Fox 40’s Studio Live, and KCRA 3).

People enjoyed learning about snakes from California and around the world, discovered solutions on how to coexist peacefully with snakes, and some even conquered their fears about snakes!

Special thanks to these SnakeFest Supporters

SnakeFest would not have been possible without our dedicated Save The Snakes volunteers and snake-friendly exhibitors:

A special shout out to Zoo Med Laboratories, South Fork Vodka and Sacramento Pipeworks for donating some cool raffle prizes, Hedgerow Farms for letting us use their canopies (to beat the heat!), Cascabel de Dos Rios for their incredible music played during the event, and Buffalo Pizza and Ice Cream for the delicious food!

Made possible by the generosity of Snake Fencing, Rattlesnake Proof Fencing Solutions, Pets To Go, and Westervelt Ecological Services, SnakeFest was an incredible day to celebrate snakes!

Stay tuned for SnakeFest 2024!

We are already planning next year’s big event. Help us grow our spectacular snake celebration! If you enjoyed SnakeFest, please consider volunteering or donating to our cause. Did not have the opportunity to attend SnakeFest? Get your official SnakeFest t-shirt here!

Snakes are important, let’s save them together.
