Gold Rush Days in Old Sacramento are here again this Labor Day weekend, August 30 – September 2! Sacramento’s 14th annual heritage celebration means more than 200 tons of dirt will be dumped on the streets of Old Sacramento as the annual festival “turns back the clock,” transforming Sacramento’s historic district into a scene straight out of the 1850s.
Costumed re-enactors, Wild West gun fights, musicians playing period instruments, and many aspects of life during the Gold Rush will be highlighted during the four-day event. There will be Dancing, Street Dramas, Pony & Wagon Rides, Gold Panning, Period Artifacts, Storytelling, Craft Making, Tent City, Period Musicians, Horse-Drawn Carriages & much more!
Admission to Gold Rush Days is FREE
Although the event is free, remember to bring money for parking. The Old Sacramento Garage (2nd & I) and The Tower Bridge Garage (Front & Capitol Mall) will have a special event flat rate parking fee of $8.00.
