The Rally starts around 8:45am and then everyone will be sent to meet with their project teams before going to their project locations. It’s going to be an incredible family-friendly atmosphere before we all go out to volunteer in 100+ projects!

The City of Modesto has graciously offered their parking lot facilities (not the garages) to our Love Modesto volunteers. “On street parking” will be available as well. We advise coming 15-20 minutes early to allot for walking distance from parking space to Festivities & Rally site.
Parking Lot Locations:
Corner of 9th and I Street
Corner of 10th & H Street,
9th Street between J and I Street (Next to McDonald’s)

It’s going to be such an incredible family-friendly atmosphere before we all go out to volunteer in 100+ projects! PLEASE spread the word on social media #lovemodesto and sign up for a project at!
