Not only does Concerts in the Park showcase the best local and nationally touring artists, the music festival also brings a wide array of food options. Sacramento is pulsing with energy and the food scene is bursting at the seams. Summer in Sacramento kicks off this week and your Fridays will be best spent tossing back a few cold ones and eating some delicious food.
