There are some new and exciting developments in the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau “Goldology” program. "Goldology" is defined as “a study of finding student-friendly treasure in Sacramento, especially with reference to performance venues, educational growth and historic significance.” We have been working hard to create some new student-friendly events and collateral materials for your groups.
- Student Activity Book. Please contact me if you would like a sample of our brand-new Sacramento Student Activity Book. The book includes a detailed Gold Rush history, crossword puzzle, word find and more. Students are encouraged to tell us their favorite thing they learned while they were in Sacramento. We will provide prizes for the best answers! For your group to be eligible to receive the Student Activity Book, a one-night minimum stay in a Sacramento hotel is required.
- California Capital Vocal Jazz & Show Choir Festival. This event was held over two days in March at the Woodlake Hotel in Sacramento. Nine schools and 15 choirs participated in the event that featured two days of competition, a karaoke dance, an option to see “Mamma Mia!” at a discounted rate at the Community Center Theatre, and an awards ceremony. We plan for this event to grow exponentially each year, so contact us to learn more about your group performing in this event next year. We are already in the process of planning the 2013 festival, so be on the lookout for more information.
- Performance Venues. Speaking of performance groups, we know that you have several groups that may be interested in performing in venues throughout the city. The Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau can arrange this for you. Click here for a pdf of student-friendly performance venues. I would be thrilled to arrange one of these venues for one of your performance groups.
Choose the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau for all your Sacramento student and youth travel and itinerary needs. Sacramento offers a variety of educational experiences from history and government to environmental to agricultural. The Capital City is also an ideal destination for performance groups as there are numerous performing venues in and around the city. We're safe, affordable and above all, student and youth friendly!
