Welcome to Gold Rush Days in Old Sacramento!
More than 200 tons of dirt will cover the streets of Old Sacramento as this annual festival turns back the clock, transforming Sacramento’s historic district 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.
For the Safety of visitors, PLEASE: All Historic Weapons are strictly prohibited and subject to inspection by the Sacramento Police Department. No horses are allowed unless permitted by the City of Sacramento Special Event Permit #461295.
Thank you and enjoy the event!
