This story has been updated to show a revised starting time for the Fresno event.
Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has two stops scheduled Sunday in the central San Joaquin Valley.
On Thursday, the Sanders campaign added a stop Sunday afternoon in Visalia and announced that his previously scheduled Sunday evening speaking event in Fresno was moving from Woodward Park to a larger venue at the Fresno Fairgrounds.
The Fresno event will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Paul Paul Theater. The outdoor venue holds around 5,000 people (by contrast, the Rotary Amphitheater at Woodward Park seats about 3,500), and the campaign plans to set up a listening area to the north of the theater for those who cannot get into the free event. People interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP on the campaign’s website.

Sanders will speak in Visalia on Sunday afternoon at the Groppetti Community Stadium at Golden West High School, 2010 N. McAuliff St. Doors will open at 2 p.m. Limited parking is available, and attendees are urged to carpool or use public transportation via the route 5T bus.
Sanders trails fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton in party delegates as all candidates campaign prior to the June 7 California primary. Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, was in Fresno on Monday to speak on her behalf. Presumed Republican nominee Donald Trump will speak at Selland Arena on Friday morning.
