Museums, Art Galleries & Workshops
Travel back in time and learn about Elk Grove’s history and heritage at the Elk Grove Historical Society on the northwest corner of Elk Grove Regional Park. Known as Heritage Park, the Society’s grounds include several historic buildings that offer glimpses into Elk Grove’s past, including an old style blacksmith shop, school and the Elk Grove House & Stage Stop Museum — an early hotel that welcomed stagecoach travelers in the 1850s.
The Elk Grove Fine Arts Center is an anchor of Elk Grove’s arts experience and welcomes visitors to view a rotating series of exhibitions, participate in art workshops, and attend free First Saturday art receptions each month. Art enthusiasts can also explore one of the other art galleries found throughout Elk Grove, such as The Spears Gallery or The Annie Peony Fine Arts Gallery, or try their hand at creating one-of-a-kind works during paint and sip classes, like those hosted at Pinot’s Palette or at area breweries or restaurants.
Looking to embrace your inner rock star? Elk Grove’s music schools, New Song Music and School of Rock Elk Grove, invite aspiring musicians of all ages to attend educational workshops and hone their skills on a variety of instruments and music styles. Children pursuing a future in Broadway can take the stage at Musical Mayhem Productions, who hosts performance workshops and classes year-round.
Live Music & Multicultural Events
Elk Grove’s events calendar is packed with live music performances, multicultural markets, family-friendly festivals and exciting celebrations at area eateries, venues and parks, such as Elk Grove Regional Park.
District56 hosts community events throughout the year, such as the Multicultural Festival (August), an Americana Vintage Market, and the NeighborGood Market, featuring produce, food, and art from local makers. Each winter, the IllumiNATION Holiday Festival kicks off the holiday season and showcases how holidays are celebrated by different cultures around the globe.
Visitors can savor Elk Grove’s diverse culinary scene while enjoying the sounds of local and touring bands and musicians at area restaurants, breweries, wineries and bars such as The Wrangler Bar, Bradley Ranch Winery, Elk Grove Sports Bar & Grill, Dust Bowl Brewing Company, and Waterman Brewing Company.
