Saturday, September 20th, 10:AM – 4:PM

2015 K Street, Sacramento CA

The Street Fair is free, but if you have the funds and time, there’s also the Sacramento Old City Association’s Historic Home Tour!

Here’s the info from SOCA!

SOCA provides a tour through historic Midtown homes, where you can see how the architectural treasures of the city have been lovingly restored and maintained for contemporary use.

This year’s home tour includes seven buildings. Six are examples of late 19th century and early 20th century residential architecture. The seventh is the oldest building in the city, the Sutter’s Fort central building, including the basement level, a location not open to the public for many decades! Other homes on the tour including Craftsman bungalows, Queen Anne cottages and Colonial Revival homes.

The tour is self-guided. Once you pick up your tour brochure and bracelet from the street fair at 20th and J Street, you can visit the homes at your leisure in whatever order you prefer.
This year’s tour focuses on the northern end of Midtown Sacramento. Ranging from J Street to N Street North to South, 20th Street to 28th Street East to West, this neighborhood is known for its architectural diversity. Ranging from 21st century infill to the oldest building in Sacramento, Midtown is a true mixed-use neighborhood, combining stunning historic architecture, a lively arts community, a diverse residential neighborhood, and an active business district.
The brochure also includes information about nearby places to eat, drink or shop.

The tour starts in between 20th and 21st on K Street–look for the street fair just east of the “Sidetraxx” nightclub building. The ticket booth on K Street will issue the wristband and tour brochure that guides you to each house (the wristband gets you in the door.) Tickets may be purchased the day of the event for $30.

Tickets cost $30 the day of the tour, or $25 in advance via Brown Paper Tickets (
) and are also on sale at the following locations:

Midtown Business Association, 919 20th Street
Time Tested Books, 1114 21st Street
