Second Saturdays Rock in Sacramento
The Second Saturday Art Walk is an evening event on the second Saturday of each month. Galleries, cafes, and other businesses open their doors to the public for a tour of local art. In the warmer months, live music, street performers, and small artisan markets pop up on the streets. The atmosphere is lively and the crowd is eclectic, including families, college students, and older art enthusiasts. Although locals have complained that some of the neighborhood ambiance has been lost as this event has gotten more crowded, I think it's a great way to get a feeling for the city. A map of participating galleries and lists of current shows can be found on the Second Saturday website, or you can check SacBee, the local newspaper, for monthly recommendations.
