Gold Rush Days 2017


Join us for Gold Rush Days!!!   At this free, family friendly event,  Old Sacramento turns back the clock, and this 28-acre historic district transforms into a scene straight out of the 1850s.

Costumed performers portray historical figures, personalities and just plain folks, bringing history to life while old-timey musicians perform on multiple stages, evoking the vivid tunes and sounds of the times.

The Sacramento History Museum, California State Railroad Museum, Old School House Museum, and the Wells Fargo History Museum partner for this event to keep history alive in Old Sacramento.
