What to do in Sacramento, Northern California this weekend?


From daytime adventures to nightlife, here’s what Northern California has planned for your weekend.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Does a jazz festival, a stamp exhibit, or even a rib cookout sound like fun? If so, that goes to show there’s something for everyone this weekend in Northern California.

Gather some friends, maybe family, or even go solo but get out there, soak up the sun, and enjoy the weekend.
