Waterfront Days

Get ready to celebrate the Inaugural Waterfront Days this Memorial Day Weekend, May 24 – 26, at the Old Sacramento Waterfront.

This exciting three-day event takes place on Front Street, the Embarcadero, and the 1849 Scene, all along the wonderful Sacramento River. The heritage celebration features a wide variety of crowd-favorite entertainment, all free to experience and enjoy. Experience the Gold Rush Fire Brigade, and other Old West theatrics, family-friendly melodramas, history re-enactments, horse-drawn carriages, cannons, gold panning, hands-on children’s arts and crafts activities, and the popular Tent City depicting daily life during the Gold Rush.

Our Sacramento Living History group is excited to bring the Gold Rush to life! Tents include a jail, a gambling tent, advice booths, an auction, and much more! Come thirsty for some sarsaparilla and excited for some history!

 

As the sun goes down you’ll move to the Embarcadero for the Waterfront Days Country Dance and Beer Garden! Saturday and Sunday will feature country artist Brad Johnson and The Killin’ Time Band on Saturday and The Rob Staley Band on Sunday. All shows are completely free to attend.
