Free Summer Park Concerts in Carmichael and Fair Oaks

Free Summer Park Concerts in Carmichael and Fair Oaks

Mangia this weekend at Festa Italiana!

Mangia this weekend at Festa Italiana!

Want to indulge with a capital "I" this weekend? What better way than at the Sacramento Italian Cultural Society's Festa Italiana! Now in its 28th year, the two day festival celebrates the Capital City's Italian community with music, dancing, shopping, and of course, the country's deliciously rich cuisine. (Why not stuff your face with a cannoli... or two...or five.)

Not Italian? Not to worry. You don't have to be to enjoy the festival's fanfare. There is a little something for everyone. For only $12 (or free if you're under age 15), attendees can enjoy a lively Italian Marketplace, children's games and rides, bocce ball, an Italian cars and motorcycles show, and a number of musical and dance performances, including a special appearance by Dean Martin impersonator, Matt Helm.

Make It a Festival Night in Sacramento

Make It a Festival Night in Sacramento

We're halfway through summer, which means it's festival time! Here are a few ways you can get your grub on at some of Sacramento's upcoming festivals.

161st Annual California State Fair, Cal Expo, July 11-27
As always, there will be hundreds of food vendors on hand at the historic fair at Cal Expo -- spaghetti ice cream, chocolate covered bacon, or fried anything -- but I especially can't wait to pick up some fresh produce from the Friends of the State Fair Farmers Market to help me stay on my healthy track! For details.

Come Swing with the Band

Come Swing with the Band

Take a sentimental journey with the Rancho Cordova River City Concert Band on Saturday, June 14th as they host a fundraising concert and dance at the Marriott Hotel in Rancho Cordova.

“Those Were the Days” features great “big band” sounds playing tunes including “Sentimental Journey,” “In the Mood,” “Tuxedo Junction,” and more.

If the sound of those great standards doesn’t get you on your feet, the instructors on hand to perform dance demonstrations and teach dance steps surely will.

The fun starts at 6 p.m. and continues until 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 14th at the Marriott’s Grand Ballroom, 11211 Point East Drive.  Tickets are $20 each, and include hors d’oeuvres, Starbucks coffee, dessert pairings and wine tasting by R. Merlo Winery, and beer tasting by the American River Brewing Company of Rancho Cordova.  No-host cocktails will also be available.
