The City of Hercules sponsors numerous annual events throughout the year. Due to the budget constraints we have had to postpone all of the City run events. We thank you for your support throughout the years and hope that you will attend the events when they return. The events encourage residents to meet fellow neighbors, enjoy our diverse community, and help make the city a better place to live. Annual events include the following:
The Hercules Certified Farmers Market has been postponed for this season. We thank you for your support. You can visit your favorite vendors at the Pinole, El Cerrito, Vallejo and Napa Farmers Markets. Please check back to see if the Farmers Market returns in 2012.
Due to budget constraints the 33nd Annual Cultural Festival has been postponed for this fiscal year. For information you can call the Hercules Parks & Recreation Department at (510) 799-8291.
Community Clean Up Day

City-Wide Garage Sale
Spring Cleaning is taken to a new level with the City-Wide Garage Sale. Residents pay to have their home listed on a map that is then sold (usually for a quarter) on the day of the event. The proceeds generated from those who sign up go to the Hercules Sister City Association, who sponsors the event.
4th of July Parade
Due to budget constraints the 4th of July Parade has been postponed for this fiscal year. For information you can call the Hercules Parks & Recreation Department at (510) 799-8291.
Hercules Sister City Program
Since 1981, the City of Hercules has been a sister city to Tsushima, Japan. Each year both cities send representatives to visit the other city and are given a grand tour of the area. The Hercules Sister City Association (HSCA) hosts the Tsushima representatives and chose the Hercules Youth Ambassadors to travel to Japan. Students are chosen based on their community involvement and willingness to represent Hercules.
