Visiting Sacramento


The Sacramento Convention Center Complex is getting an extreme makeover. The complex includes not only the convention center, but also Memorial Auditorium and the Community Center Theater, which are also used as event space. These projects will create a dynamic event district while improving the guest experience. It will allow the convention center to host more events, remain competitive with other convention centers, and generate more hotel room nights and more revenue.

California Dream Big


Everyone loves a party, and there's nothing like the good-time atmosphere at California's top events. Here, you'll find festivals, fairs, competitions, and championships worth adding to your itinerary or making destinations in themselves. Escape to food and wine extravaganzas in bucket-list destinations like Napa Valley and Yosemite.

Take part in rock-the-world music festivals like Coachella near Palm Springs or Outside Lands in San Francisco. See the stars walk by at film festivals and awards shows in Los Angeles, whoop it up with the kids at classic country fairs in the Central Valley, and watch ultimate athletes take on monster waves at Maverick's or zoom across the state in Amgen Tour of California.
