PostHeaderIcon Explore Sacramento! Fun Activites & Things To Do

Exploring Sacramento Has Never Been Better Than Spring!  And once the pollen has died down, there will be no end to the fun just waiting for you!  So get out and get going ‘cause spring will be summer in no time at all.

It is the beginning of festival season in the Sacramento Region.  Calendars ready? Adventure out to the colorful and educational Pacific Rim Street Fest in Old Sac & Downtown Plaza May 18th from 10am to 5pm – great food, amazing costumes and family-friendly!  If you are looking for something fun, energetic and different check out Spanglish Arte’s unique Pinata Festival at Southside Park in Sacramento May 24th from 11am to 6pm.  Have you ever been to a pinata-hitting contest? Guaranteed laughs….and of course lots of candy! Ready to get down and dirty? Kick it up a notch with crawfish and blues?  Cajun and Blues in Isleton, the grand daddy of jazz festivals will be June 14th and 15th (Father’s Day Weekend).

You are probably asking….but where is the FOOD DRIVEN EVENTS and FESTIVALS?  Good point….we got you covered!  If you want to spend A Day on The Farm you can visit American River Ranch on May 18th for a day of learning, eating, music and celebrating the local farms bounty…..even cooking classes will be offered.  Two great events to consider on Saturday June 7th -  Sacramento VegFest – a food event celebrating plant-based foods and products with some world-class speakers.  All takes place at the Red Lion Hotel – 11am to 6pm.  Wanting more that weekend…head on over to Cesar Chavez Plaza for Sacramento Region’s Premier Wine & Food Festival – Grape Escape.  Over 60 of the region’s wineries and 40 local restaurants – you won’t walk away hungry or dehydrated for sure!  Advanced ticketing required for this event.  If you are looking for a more Intimate Affair with food and smooth tequila then reserve your seats for a Pre-Father’s Day Tequila Pairing 4 Course Dinner at Mayahuel Tequila Museo Friday June 13th at 7pm.  You can book your tickets thru Local Roots Food Tours who is sponsoring the event!  Buy Tickets Here.

Futbol is here, fellow soccer fans!  Say hello to the Sacramento Republic FC.  Now that we have a team, let’s join the rest of the world and call it futbol.  The Republics are currently tied for third place in the USL Pro standing.  A great match up against LA Galaxy II should be your next sporting event in Sacramento – Saturday May 17th at Hughes Stadium. A few pointers:  It is a match, not a game.  It is a pitch, not a field.  There are no time outs.

The boys of summer are back!  The Sacramento River Cats are well into the swing of their season.  And home games abound.  Forget about Fix50, pull into Raley Field and take in American’s pastime on June 13th and 14th when they vs. Iowa.   And for the second year, fireworks after every Friday night home game and Saturday game.  If it’s good food and good beer you are after then you have come to the right place!  Sure there are peanuts and cracker jacks, but also An Honest Pie – a food truck featuring sweet and savory pies, as well as an expanded menu from Broderick Roadhouse in the Jack Daniels Solon Club.  There are gluten-free and vegetarian dining options.  And don’t forget the beer garden.  Going to a game has never been this delicious before.

You might not need a pig, but you definitely need to go to a market and ALL of our local Certified Farmer’s Markets are open.  Over 11 to choose from in the area!! Find a market near you: CLICK HERE   If you are looking to learn about the farm before you pick up your fork you should check out Sierra Foothills Farm & Wine Tour in Placer County on Saturday, May 31st or Friday, June 6th.  Meet farmers, vintners and a pig named Gordo!  Buy Tickets Here

What Folks are Saying!

We had a great time on our food tour! Ashley, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the restaurants we visited, as well as the local history on our walk. We enjoyed interacting with the chef/representative of every place we stopped and learned something from each. We would highly recommend this walking tour and look forward to attending one of the other tours Local Roots offers soon!
