Things to Do
Since Sacramento is the capital of California, it is inherently an attraction where events and gatherings are constantly being held. One of the most notable is the California State Fair. This is a large-scale community fair that attracts headlining musical guests and hosts an endless list of contests, concerts, booths, and food all within the Cal Expo grounds.
Sacramento has a sparkling reputation as a farm-to-fork cuisine destination and the Farm-to-Fork Festival is an amazing opportunity to survey the landscape. This food-oriented street festival runs for three days so guests have every chance to sample food offerings and enjoy performances. The jewel on the festival’s calendar is the Tower Bridge Dinner. This unique event is a hot ticket as it provides an immaculate meal made by local artisans and a once-in-a-lifetime view. The Tower Bridge is shut down and dressed as a luxurious restaurant set up all along its length where the meal is served.
Sacramento is also a lauded brewing destination and various groups host artisan pub crawls where residents can meet up and mingle.
