Community Events in Sacramento

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento car accident lawyer. Here in the capital city, there are plenty of exciting options for families and individuals looking to get out and attend events in their community. Some of the interesting community events taking place in Sacramento during the upcoming weeks are included below.

Walk 4 Literacy

In order to promote literacy in the city of Sacramento, the Sacramento Public Library Foundation, 916 Ink (a local non-profit), and Teach For America have teamed up to host an advocacy event.

The walk will take place on Saturday, October 21, 2017, and begins at 9:00 a.m. The event will begin at Cesar Chavez Plaza and continue through the city. The price of tickets will go toward supporting Sacramento public schools and help organizers reach their city-wide goal of ensuring that children are writing and reading at grade-level by the end of third grade.

In 2016, the event raised $5,000 dollars for local programs that positively impact children’s literacy and, to date, the program has raised $30,000 dollars for local education efforts. Ticket information can be found at

Specialty Coffee Week Grand Finale

Sacramento is quickly becoming an industry leader in specialty coffee and this is the week that local coffee-makers celebrate their craft. Although the week-long series of events started on Sunday, October 15, 2017, there are still many upcoming events that those interested in artisan coffee can attend, including the all-day Grand Finale.

The Specialty Coffee Week Grand Finale Event will be taking place at 9:00 a.m. and continuing until 10 p.m. at The Vintage Monkey at 400 North 16th Street in Sacramento. The day-long event will include a full schedule of coffee-related attractions including classes on specialty coffee-making, silent auctions, and the Sacramento Public Latte Art Tournament (SPLAT).

Arte y Almas: Dia de Los Muertos 2017

The California Museum opened its new exhibit on October 13, 2017, during the Sacramento Dia de Los Muertos Festival and will continue to show it through December 30, 2017. The collection features installations from contemporary artist collectives Lipiztola and Sonrisa de la Muerte from Mexico as well as Californian artists Oscar Magallanes and Lurac.

The exhibit celebrates the Mexican tradition of honoring loved ones who have passed away on November 1 and 2 of every year. Pieces in the exhibit explore this tradition which has evolved from Aztec culture to the cultures of modern-day California and Mexico. More information about ticket prices and museum hours can be found here.
