Arts & Culture, Stay

We were heartbroken when we announced that the 29th Concerts in the Park season would be postponed until 2021. But we weren’t going to let that stop us from finding a way to rock out with each and every one of you! #CIPSAC’s Virtual DJ Sets have officially kicked off our stay-at-home summer, and we’re here to give you the ultimate guide that will guarantee you get the most out of your virtual experience.


The best way to prep for Friday’s virtual set is to start your week off strong by rocking out to the #CIPSAC Spotify playlists. Jumpstart your Monday with our Chill Vibes playlist designed to smooth out your day and help ease you into the week. Or get over the mid-week slump with our Dance Party playlist that will no doubt start to pump you up for Friday. When Friday finally comes, and you can practically taste the weekend, amp it up with the Ultimate #CIPSAC Playlist, which embraces the true essence of Concerts in the Park from the comfort of your own home. Chill out, rock out, or just reminisce, whatever your vibe is these songs will definitely put you in the #CIPSAC mood.

It’s hard to have a true #CIPSAC experience without awesome food and drinks. In true festival fashion, Concerts in the Park has always been dedicated to providing some of Sacramento’s most popular and tasty goodies to accompany the epic music that takes the stage each week. Although we can’t be together in the park this year, we are still determined to offer you the same yummy experience at home. So, before you rock out with us, make sure to #SupportLocal and safely pick up some happy hour treats from your favorite local restaurants.

Pro Tip #1: check out our list of locations we’ve partnered with to offer you an exclusive discount using the special code CIPSAC. More details found here.


Twitch has become the epicenter of our new virtual experience! If you haven’t heard of it before, have no fear. We know it can sometimes be a hassle having to download a new app or create a new account, but with Twitch you don’t have to do either. By streaming our virtual sets on Twitch anyone and everyone has the ability to watch without having to jump through those hoops. You can also watch on whatever device you prefer; your phone, your laptop, or even your smart TV.

Pro Tip #2: Make sure you follow us on Instagram! We will post a swipe up link when we are live. Making it even easier for you to tune in! No need to download an app or create an account if you don’t want to. You can access from your browser or smart TV by searching cipsacramento on Twitch.

For those who are Twitch experts, make sure you are following our channel and interacting with our panels, which are easy shortcuts into connecting with the #DowntownSac community.


In case you haven’t heard, we are currently encouraging our community to #SupportLocal and consider making a donation to support #DowntownSac. 100% of the funds raised will help support #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.)

In the spirit of friendly competitions, our DJ’s are also challenging each other to see who can raise the most amount of donations. Whichever DJ raises the most money during their virtual set will automatically earn a spot on the 2021 #CIPSAC lineup! Make sure you show your love for your favorite DJ and make a donation that will help keep the heart of our region vibrant, growing, and ready to rebound so we can rock together soon.


Even though we are all responsibly practicing physical distancing, we don’t believe that means that we should be socially distant. Yes, we are talking about connecting through the powers of social media! We want to make sure that we are still connecting with our awesome community, and want to see all of your favorite #CIPSAC moments and memories. Whether that’s from that one night the park was packed for your favorite headliner, that one time Nash & Proper’s chicken redefined the word spicy, or even your first ever #CIPSAC virtual performance – share them with us! Make sure you tag us at @cipsacramento and rock our favorite hashtag #CIPSAC.

There you have it, the ultimate guide to the ultimate virtual experience. We hope this helps amp up your quarantine quarantine, and we can’t wait to virtually rock out with you on Twitch!
