New Year's Patch The Sacramento Walking Sticks continue the tradition of putting on two different walks on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

For New Yearís Eve, we will be walking through East Sacramento to The Fab 40ís where we can enjoy their famous and amazing decorations without the crowds, taking all the time we need to enjoy everything we see along the way.

Our New Yearís Day event will circle midtown and downtown viewing art and architecture in different neighborhoods as we look at different styles of houses and see new artwork.

Each day has its own routes. Come prepared for cold and rain w/appropriate clothing and flashlights. Bring your friends, family and co-workers.

Ice Cream Walk!
August 13 & 14, 2019

Vic's and Gunther's signs
Sacramentoís warm summer nights are the perfect opportunity to eat ice cream at its two locally owned ice creameries in the Land Park and Curtis Park neighborhoods: Vic's and Guntherís. If you didnít get enough on the previous night or if you couldnít make it, there is another opportunity on Thursday morning to sample the tasty treats at these creameries. The walk between the two is a lovely shady stroll through upscale neighborhoods with classic 20's and 30's homes. Join the Sacramento Walking Sticks for this annual fun event and bring the family!
