Gold Rush Days in Old Sacramento
Going strong since 1974 every Memorial Day Weekend in Old Sacramento it's the Sacramento Music Festival. Previously known for it traditional jazz lineup the festival was re-imagined a few years ago. A wide open smorgasbord of music and fun from marching bands to solo banjo players.
Make sure to check out Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats. Personally steer clear of Pablo Snooze(cruise) unless in need of a nap.
Join the people dancing in the streets of Old Sac this weekend at the Sacramento Music Festival.

The F#@* me I'm Irish buttons will be out in force and so will the green beer drinkers but I can live with that. My ancestry is Scot so i can hang with green and bagpipes just fine.
Hundreds of festive and perhaps Kilt wearing marchers dressed in Green along with Drummers and Pipers will be weaving through Old Sac as well as dancers and history re-enactors join together with several cultural organizations to have a good green time. Cause everybody is Irish on St Paddys.
Make sure to get there by 1 PM and it starts at 2nd & I streets. More than 15,000 have turned out in the past so let the luck of the Irish navigate you to a parking spot or better yet get delivered by someone else.
On a side note Old Sacramento will be closed to traffic from Noon to 3 PM with some streets closing at 10 am. Make sure to use Public Parking lots or be dropped off.
