    Hitch up the team to your buckboard and come on down! Bring the young'uns and the in-laws, the neighbors and the new folk just off the stage from Back East. Heck, bring your sweetheart along for a thrill. During Labor Day Weekend in Old Sacramento you’ll find yourself transported back to the days of Gold and Glory, when California was a brand-new state with brand-new ideas. Join in the truly old-time fun in the world of Yesterday!

    More than 200 tons of dirt will pave the streets of Old Sacramento as this annual festival "turns back the clock," transforming Sacramento's historic district into a scene straight out of the 1850s. Hundreds of costumed performers take on the roles of celebrities, personalities, and just plain folks, bringing history to life while bluegrass pickers and old-timey musicians perform on several stages, evoking the vivid tunes of the times.

    Featuring dancers, street dramas, wagon rides, gold panning, period artifacts, storytelling, craft making, embarcadero tent city, period musicians, horse-drawn carriages, and much more!

    On Friday, enjoy a Gold Rush Days Beer Crawl around Old Sacramento bars.
