With a law enforcement history that stretches back over three decades, San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks strives to serve with the intelligence and respect that California citizens demand of their elected officials. Over his years in the office, Sheriff Greg Munks has been intimately involved with the establishment and management of a number of innovative government programs, community outreach projects, and special events. One such event is the annual “food, art, music, and community” celebration known as the North Fair Oaks Community Festival.

Sponsored by the Sheriff's Office of San Mateo County, the North Fair Oaks Community Festival draws more than 30,000 people to Redwood City each year. This multicultural entertainment and craft festival features a parade, a Queen of the Festival Scholarship presentation, and a highly anticipated raffle. The event raises funds for the San Mateo County Sheriff's Activities League, an organization that hosts afterschool and summer activities to benefit children from disadvantaged homes. Proceeds from the North Fair Oaks Community Festival also go to support the Activities League’s mountain summer camp.

The next North Fair Oaks Community Festival will take place on Sunday, August 25, 2013. Bands slated to play this year’s festival include Banda Reinas de la Bahia, La Orden de Michoacan, and Mambo Tropical.

Sheriff Greg Munks has overseen the planning and execution of the North Fair Oaks Community Festival since his election to the office in 2006.
