    Get ready to step back in time when the past mingles with the present once again in Old Sacramento! For the third consecutive summer, visitors to Old Sacramento will enjoy lively and interactive street theatre as part of the hugely popular “Time Travel Weekends” to delight guests near and far.

Additionally, the talented performers will roam the streets of Old Sacramento throughout the scheduled weekends, putting on spontaneous and often-elaborate skits and performances so visitors can step back in time to the 1850s, 1860s, and 1870s.
