Origins of Sacramento Food & Cultural Walking Tour (April - June)
The Origins of Sacramento Food and Cultural Walking Tour explores the very beginnings of Sacramento,from Sutter's colony Nueva Helvecia to the Fabulous Forties, with tastings of the best dishes the immigrants brought with them. You'll learn about how the many diverse groups forged our great city and created its agricultural dominance.
