Old Sacramentoâ€™s 12th annual Gold Rush Days celebration takes place Sept. 3â€“5. The real party, however, starts Friday night, Sept. 2. The Gold Rush Days Beer Crawl is the ultimate way to kick off the weekend! Grab some friends after work and head down to explore Old Sacramento bars and restaurants. For only $10 you can visit at least nine bars or restaurants in no particular order and get a 6- to 9- ounce craft beer at each. The event starts at 6 p.m. and runs until midnight, but the party will continue until the bars are closed. Everyone is encouraged to get into the spirit and dress the part, so dig out those gold miner, saloon girl and gunfighter costumes.
