SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Does a renaissance faire, a farm-to-fork festival, or maybe even a paranormal circus sound fun to you? If so, it goes to show there's something for everyone this weekend in Northern California.
The weekend weather has warmed back up just a bit, with temperatures in the high 80s with a slight northwest breeze. Gather up some friends, maybe family members or even go solo, but here are some weekend events for your first weekend of Sacramento's fall season.
Come celebrate the city of Sacramento with a free street festival, featuring the tastes and sounds of California's Farm to Fork capitol! Japanese Breakfast and Gregory Porter will headline the festival’s two-day concert series and there will be local vendors, food trucks, regional wines, craft beer, cooking demonstrations and much more.
Get dressed up in all festive gear because midtown will be transformed into Germany. This festival will feature German beer, German entertainment, food, games and prizes, and live music from the German band The Alpenmeisters, DJ Eddie Z, and MC Tommy G.
Come and experience a fusion of history and fantasy with culinary delicacies, craft demonstrations, ancient music, dance and comedy shows, magic and contortionist shows, swashbucklers, pirates and fairies! Also, enjoy real jousting and full armored combat between knights, ambassadors from foreign lands, juggling jesters, winsome wenches, lords and ladies, knights of horseback, squires and simpletons.
This outdoor event features menu tastings from over a dozen North Sacramento restaurants, eateries, and breweries. A great chance to mingle with neighbors, enjoy food, and raise funds for the North Sacramento-Hagginwood Library!
