Sacramento Museums to Showcase Variety & Diversity With Interactive Booth at the Fair

For the first time ever, the Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM) will offer an interactive and fun booth at the California State Fair (July 11-27, 2014) in an effort to showcase the variety and diversity of offerings available in our region.   State Fair guests are invited to imagine, explore and discover more about local museums and destinations at the visually-exciting Sacramento Museums booth that will be located in Building A on the bottom floor next to the State Fair Post Office.

In addition to providing helpful information about all 30 SAM member museums, the Sacramento Museums booth will include a number of hands-on activities every day that include the following:

Businesses are encouraged to take part of the Friday night concerts by either sponsoring the event, or by having a business booth out there.

Each concert that is hosted has a different theme and style of music. For 2014, the themes for Evening in the Park are:
 

Spend your Fourth on the Field!

Spend your Fourth on the Field!

Still searching for something to do this July 4th? Come out and celebrate our nation’s birthday on the baseball field! Raley Field will bring the neighborhood block party feel to the River Cats' home turf this Friday night.

In the evening, kiddos can enjoy a fun-filled kids area equipped with games, coloring pages, face painters, and inflatable structures; local food trucks, beer, and live music from Nunchuck Taylor will entertain grown-ups.

To cap off the night, find a comfy spot on the field and watch the night sky above the ballpark light up with a spectacular fireworks show synced to patriotic music at 9:30pm. (Blankets are okay; no chairs are allowed on the field.)

Turning Trash into Treasure

Turning Trash into Treasure

It’s known that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, but this summer’s Art of the Dumpster exhibit takes this idea to another level.

Commissioned by Power Inn Alliance and curated by the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, this collaborative project showcases the talents of 10 local emerging artists on a very unusual canvas – massive 22 foot long dumpsters. The result: colorful, abstract, interactive, larger-than-life pop-art masterpieces.
