Step back in time with Gold Rush Days in Old Sacramento, an annual festival that transforms the 28-acre historic district into a scene from the 1850s. You’ll mingle with costumed performers portraying historical figures, personalities and everyday townspeople, bringing history to life in a tangible way. Visit Tent City, a recreation of town life including saloons, a gambling tent, doctors, etc. You can also go gold panning, travel through Artisan Alley, and hear live music from old-timey musicians performing on multiple stages. This will be a unique and authentic experience you won’t want to miss this Labor Day weekend!
