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, GoldenSky, and Sol Blume, 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.
