Frankie Wenson

Support your love for downtown!

We’re excited to release a unique new collection of coloring pages featuring a few of our favorite downtown places. Download all 10 illustrations created by local artists designed to show off your inner creative and proudly display in your living room!

While the pages are available at no cost to download, we encourage you to consider making a donation to the Downtown Sacramento Foundation (DSF) towards our #SupportLocal campaign that invests in #DowntownSac businesses who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and help support #DowntownSac events and activations (once it’s safe to do so again). Your 100% tax-deductible donation keeps the heart of our region vibrant, growing, and ready to rebound.
