Location is central, near l street. Although parking is difficult- except in the nearby paying parking. Local craft people offer their own creations ( glass , leather , jewlery ,artistic clothing, books, etc ) every year, over 350 to 400 stands press themselves through the show. All crafts-people wait for the fall offerings. ( some food, music and fair like... More

The Convention Center is a great place to catch one of your favorite mobile attractions, such as Easy Rider, whatever version of ComiCon moves around, tattoo conventions, timeshare sales gimmicks, etc. I don't believe there is any reason, whatsoever, to stop by and take a peek of the Convention Center, nonevent, empty, and quite. Now Best of Sacramento, March of... More

This venue is huge and can accommodate lots of people, but the layout of the building was odd and a bit confusing the first time around. It was nice that there was a Starbucks and a pizza place inside and that there are tons of restaurants around it for easy dining on a short lunch break. The refreshments provided by... More

The Convention Center is easy to navigate, has plenty of restrooms, and a large outdoor patio to eat lunch on if you brought your own. The food venue inside for my conference was below par and expensive. There is a Starbuck's on one side, the line gets very long. I would recommend making a reservation somewhere near for your meal,... More

Huge venue, lots of space with some close by conveniences. The down side is the parking. Parking sucks unless you use hotel parking or valet. There is a small Starbucks in the lobby, but its always slammed it there is an event. The food provided was okay, but I ended up eating elsewhere immediately afterwards.

The touring company of Book of Mormon was our last visit. The facility was relatively clean however the amount of food and drinks allowed into the theatre is ridiculous! The floor beneath our seats was sticky from some drink that was spilt earlier so we kept our handbags on our laps. The lack of moving air also made it very... More

Came here for an art show. Parking was relatively inexpensive if you park one block down from the convention hall and not at the hyatt. I recommend looking for street parking if it is a sunday or a holiday. There a good selection of food nearby and in walking distance. I like the lobby area in the Hyatt very spacious... More

Every Labor day my daughter and I are here dancing our hearts out with some of the best people in Sacramento! They are of Greek decent. They have photos from many cities and islands. When you walk in the front door...you hear the music and smell the aromas of the wonderful food. I have traveled to Greece. And this is... More

The Sacramento Community Center is a clean well organized facility. It is easily accessible by RT or private automobile. The Center has a number of excellent restaurants in the neighborhood.
