Crowds filled Woodward Park Saturday for the two-day Grizzly Fest musical festival. 

This is the second year Grizzly Fest has been held at the Northeast Fresno location. Organizers expect around 20 thousand people to attend through both days. This year, organizers say people from 29 states, and from all over California purchased tickets to the event. 

“We have a lot of people that have never been to Fresno, that this is their first time, and to say that this is their first experience to Fresno, they’re going to leave, saying that that was a cool place,” said organizer Aren Hekiminan. 

Those enjoying the days get to see more than 40 acts including entertainer G-Eazy and more than 20 DJs. The festival also brings food and goods, plus a silent disco and new this year- a filtered water area and a video game center. Locals who made the trip say they’re impressed. 

“There’s a lot of potential for Fresno to grow, so it’s really good that this event is here because it will definitely help Fresno grow and be more known,” said festival goer Jose Torres.

You can buy tickets for the event on site each day until 8pm.
