The Marysville Peach Fest has been held annually since 1999 on the third weekend in July, on D Street between 1st and 6th Streets in Marysville. It was created by Jody Sodaro of Sodaro Orchards in Marysville and is co-sponsored by Sodaro Orchards and the Marysville Police Department. The fest celebrates the tremendous production of peaches in the Yuba-Sutter area. (Yuba County and Sutter County are ranked sixth and second, respectively, among all the nation's counties in production of peaches.) It includes a 5K Run/Walk, live music, activities, rides, street vendors, and fresh peaches. There is also a pancake breakfast held at the Silver Dollar Saloon as a fundraiser for the Marysville High School Future Farmers of America.
