Concerts & Live Music

Seeing live music shows and concerts is a popular draw for visitors to California’s capital. They range from the free concert at the annual Farm-to-Fork Street Festival, massive music shows like Aftershock, and smaller series like the free Concerts in the Park in Downtown Sacramento to more traditional venues like the Golden 1 Center and Memorial Auditorium, as well as smaller concert venues.

If you love live music, don’t miss smaller venues like Ace of Spades on R Street, as well as coffee bar performances and solo artists at some of the region’s favorite restaurants, which can provide the perfect audio accompaniment to your farm-to-fork meal.
