June Blooms in the Rocklin and Roseville Communities
Rocklin Parks and Recreation
The City of Rocklin is welcoming summer with some new, can’t-miss community events.
One of the most unique community dining experiences is coming to Placer County. Produced by the award-winning company, Unseen Heroes, this free event invites attendees of all ages and walks of life to experience a variety of artisanal food, craft beverages, local and regional art and music, as well as a communal dining table—uniting you and your neighbors in an unforgettable way. Gather starts on the fourth Thursday of each month (June 22) and continues through October at Quarry Park.
SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK
Looking for a culturally satisfying event to bring the family to? Take Note Troupe has the perfect summertime solution. On June 8-10 from 6-9 p.m., watch a free, theatrical performance of The Taming of the Shrew in beautiful Quarry Park. Pack a picnic dinner and enjoy a delightful evening out with the family.
FREE MOVIE FRIDAY
The city is resuming its popular “Free Movie Fridays” on June 16 with a showing of The Secret Life of Pets at Kathy Lund Park. Get some fresh air, mingle with your neighbors and catch a flick, while enjoying some quality time with the kiddos.

Roseville Parks and Recreation
Summer is here, and it’s time to enjoy a good paperback poolside, stretched out on the beach, or cozied up in your favorite nook. While you’re enjoying all that book time, don’t forget to participate in the summer reading program at your local library.
Not only will you get prizes for reading, but there’s entertainment on tap, too—ranging from “The Bubble Lady” for kids, to a teen escape room, and a Tequila Mockingbird party for adults. There’s even a special event for stuffed animals.
As a community, the goal is to read 100,000 books, so we need your help! Download a reading log beginning June 3 (or pick one up at your local library). Happy reading!
