'Oak Park Roots & Branches Walkabout' & Free Evening Concert Set for Saturday, September 29

September 9, 2018 |  

The Oak Park Roots & Branches Walkabout and Live Concert Finale is an autumn afternoon opportunity for Oak Parkers and surrounding neighborhoods to partake the locally-owned shops, cafes, restaurants, and learn about Oak Park through historical photos and text within these venues. 

The event, which runs from 3:30 to - 6 p.m., is celebrated with free live blues, Americana & jazz on a self-guided Broadway Avenue experience, capped off with a free roots music concert and multi-media live cinema-liquid light show at dusk (7 p.m.) in the Sacramento Food Bank parking lot.

A free passport (available at each of these six locations and online) leads participants through Oak Park businesses on Broadway:

  • Broadway Coffee- Red's Blues Trio (3:30-5:30 p.m.)
  • Classy Hippie Tea Co.- Ross Hammond (4-6p.m.)
  • Arthur Henry's- Jack Chandler's Ice Age Jazztet (4-6 p.m.)
  • Old Soul @ 40 Acres- Proxy Moon (4-6 p.m.)
  • Brickhouse Art Gallery- Reggie Graham Trio  (3:30-5:30 p.m.)
  • Concert @ Sacramento Food Bank Parking Lot-333 3rd Ave. (7-9 p.m.)- The Annie Sampson Band

In each portal, visitors can enjoy the wares and ambiance, learn the history of each building and area via Oak Park “Roots & Branches” historical photos and text, and on this day, hear live music from well-known and respected Sacramento area/Northern California regional recording artists. Participant passports will be stamped at each venue by a volunteer docent on hand to chat with attendees from 3:30 pm-6:00 pm. 

Stamped passports will be turned in for a small gift bag (discount coupons from area businesses, CDS, etc.) at the concert finale. Each person will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire about their experience. This event is funded by a Creative Economy Grant from the City of Sacramento.
