Having fun with family and friends while helping a good cause.

Pops in the Park is an opportunity to raise money for our under-funded neighborhood parks while bringing free, quality entertainment to the community. Sponsorship and advertising dollars, as well as proceeds from the sale of food and beverages at the events, have been used since 1995 to fund this event, enhance our neighborhood parks, bring improvements to the neighborhood and provide youth athletic scholarships. Pops in the park hosts 4 concerts in the Sacramento area where kids, parents and friends can enjoy a simple night out while listening to some good music.

What to bring?

Feel free to bring a blanket or a lawn chair for seating. Sunscreen is also highly recommended.  No outside alcohol, DO NOT bring canopies, or umbrellas, as it blocks people’s view. We encourage you to purchase your food and beverages from our local food vendors. Note that a portion of the proceeds from food and beverage sales help to fund these wonderful events and raise money for neighborhood improvements.  

There will be a beer and wine garden. Beer and wine purchased in the garden must stay in the gated garden area, however all ages are welcome in the garden. We encourage carpooling, walking or bicycling to all events.  FREE valet bicycle parking is being provided by Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates (SABA).
