Sactown Magazine wins two Folio Awards in NYC

We’re thrilled to announce that last night, at a ceremony in New York, Folio magazine, the country's largest trade publication for our industry, handed out its annual Folio Awards, and Sactown won in two categories. One award was for best cover design for last year’s Oct/Nov issue touting our guide to Apple Hill on the front. The award recognizes “outstanding design of a magazine cover as measured in typography, composition, color, balance, immediacy."

Swiss light artist to project one-of-a-kind light artwork on the walls of Sutter’s Fort

Let there be lights. Later this month, Sutter’s Fort will be illuminated with a one-of-a-kind work created by renowned Swiss light artist Gerry Hofstetter. On Oct. 25, Hofstetter, who has lit up landmarks like the Roman Colosseum, the pyramids of Egypt and the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., will project a curated montage of more than 20 images—combining historic documents and photographs provided by California State Parks with his own contemporary artworks—on the exterior walls of midtown’s Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park. The artist chose Sutter’s Fort as the only California stop on his four-year, 50-state Light Art Grand Tour USA, during which he aims to travel to one historic site in each state to use as the backdrop for a...

Bigger ice rink to debut in downtown Sacramento this winter

Winter in Sacramento is about to get a whole lot cooler.  Fall may have just arrived, but winter is just around the corner, which means hot cocoa, wonderfully ugly holiday sweaters and, of course, ice skating. And this November, the Downtown Sacramento Partnership (DSP) will debut its newly redesigned rink at St. Rose of Lima Park at 7th and K streets for prime downtown gliding. Previously a 5,350-square-foot oval, the new and improved rink will be square with rounded corners—a shape that will better maximize the space, allowing for more skaters at one time. The new rink will be 6,800-square-feet, just shy of Rockefeller Center's rink, which clocks in at 7,200 square feet. In previous years, the small structures that housed the skate...
