We’re bringing the “party of the year” back to Sacramento! The 15th Best of Sacramento Party to benefit our local March of Dimes will take place Thursday, November 12, 2015 at the Sacramento Convention Center. Since 1999, Sacramento magazine has helped raise more than 4.3 million dollars through this event, in support of the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies. We are proud to note that of nearly 100 other “Best Of” parties across the country, Sacramento’s affair is still the largest and greatest tribute to any one city across the nation.
What makes this party so exciting is the blend of food, wine, beer, cider, entertainment & businesses create a festive atmosphere. We invite the top restaurants, and food purveyors from our region to serve their best. Wineries and breweries from across Northern California are invited to pour. We partner with the top businesses throughout the region. Their sponsorship and participation in the Best of Sacramento Party helps make this a don’t-miss event.
