Sausage & Suds Music Festival

Submitted By Audrey Velasquez

Join in the fun of San Leandro's largest free music festival, Sausage & Suds! Held on Parrott Street between Washington Avenue and East 14th Street, Sausage & Suds originated in 1997 to celebrate San Leandro's designation as the "Sausage Capital of California" by the California State Legislature. The event features lots of sausage, a selection of 30 great beers, and fine wines. There will be a free kid's "Green Zone" sponsored by OSIsoft, LLC, featuring fun outdoor attractions, making this a family friendly event.

Sponsored by the San Leandro Downtown Association, this festival is intended to promote Fun in Downtown, allowing an opportunity for neighbors and friends to gather for an entertaining afternoon. Within walking distance from BART, and with bicycle parking available right on Parrott Street, alternative modes of transportation are encouraged.

The entertainment lineup features Avance (, the return of the extremely popular Spazmatics (, Glimpse Trio (, and Layce Baker and the Black Diamond Band. This year the show starts with a healthy and invigorating free Zumba class and workout right on Parrott Street in front of the stage.

These activities are accompanied by, of course, a wide variety of sausages, quality beer (suds!)... and more. To support the production of free events such as this, visit the Downtown Association's food booth featuring sausages generously donated by San Leandro based Aidell's Sausage Company, Inc. and delicious cookies donated by San Leandro based Otis Spunkmeyer.

The San Leandro Downtown Association would like to thank its many sponsors including OSIsoft, LLC; Aidells Sausage Company, Inc.; Otis Spunkmeyer; Peterson Tractor; Horizon Beverage; Ghirardelli Chocolate; and Coca-Cola. Learn more at or

Come join the fun!
