Summer Events Coming to Downtown Sac

Jordan Alwood

Keep your eyes peeled– summer events are ALMOST here!

To kick off the warm weather approaching here are all the summer events the Downtown Sacramento Partnership produces:

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

If it’s the Luck of the Irish you’re looking for, come find it at Old Sacramento Waterfront in March!  Enjoy a parade, live musical entertainment, outdoor beer gardens, and a chance to find Leprechauns hiding throughout the charming historic district.

Saturday, March 18th

Parade Time: 1:00 pm

Al Fresco Seating and Vendor Village: 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Event Location:  Old Sacramento Waterfront

To apply to be a vendor or in the parade: 


Capitol Mall Farmer’s Market

Downtown Sacramento’s Certified Farmers’ Market is coming to Capital Mall on Wednesdays from 10 AM to 1 PM on May 3rd.

Downtown Sacramento’s Farmers’ Market offers chefs and shoppers locally sourced fruits, vegetables, baked goods, flowers, herbs, and cheeses.

Get ready to fill your stylish bags with farm-fresh produce and deliciously vibrant flower bouquets!

Bodega Days Market

Another summer favorite is Bodega Days at Cesar Chavez Plaza!

Starting May 4th, enjoy a weekly market every Thursday in Downtown Sacramento with farm-fresh produce, freshly baked bread, locally crafted gifts, artist creations, and a variety of food vendors.

Take a long lunch break and step away from the office for a stroll through Cesar Chavez Plaza.

Concerts in the Park

Our one and only Concerts in the Park runs from May through July every Friday night from 5 PM to 9 PM at Cesar Chavez Plaza.

Enjoy food trucks, live music, and even better beer with us this upcoming season.

The Countdown Begins!

Summer, summer, SUMMER! We hope if we say it three times fast it will come sooner. Maybe not– we just can’t wait to hang out with all of you and enjoy the sunshine.
