North Modesto Kiwanis is excited to host the City's 17th Annual American GraffitiFestival....... one of Modesto's greatest traditions!

The most important change this year is our new location. The festival will take place at the Modesto Municipal Golf Course!  

For Festival details, general information, or car registration, please go to our Festival Page by clicking on the festival logo to the left. If you have specific questions, feel free to email via this Information link.

Head downtown Friday night and find a spot to call your own to take in the expanded car parade.  It will begin at 7pm in downtown Modesto, run out McHenry Avenue to Orangeburg Ave, and back to downtown.  This longer route will prove to make the parade a much more pleasant and memorable experience for participants and spectators alike.  Remember, you must be registered in the show to be entered in the parade, so register early.

Whether you are a car owner or spectator, please plan to join us the entire weekend. This year promises to be one of our grandest and most memorable festivals of all!

Follow us at our Festival Facebook Page for updates & highlights.

The North Modesto Kiwanis Club is a part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of volunteers dedicated to making a difference in the world, one community and one child at a time. The North Modesto Kiwanis Club performs many community service projects primarily in Modesto and the surrounding Stanislaus County area to help serve and benefit children.

Our largest event, the annual American Graffiti Festival, raises funds which enable us to continue to give support to the 40 plus programs we contribute to in and around the Modesto community, as well as giving to many of the additional requests we receive annually.  If you are interested in performing community service and benefitting children here in this area, we encourage you to learn more about North Modesto Kiwanis here on our site and welcome you to join us for a meeting.
