Looking around the internet this morning and came across this event. The Pacific Rim Street Fest on 05/18/14 at Old Sacramento and Downtown Plaza. This sounds like something fun to do this weekend. Here is what it's about from the website http://www.pacificrimstreetfest.com/about_us.html :
The Pacific Rim Street Fest is a major program of the Asian Pacific Rim Foundation, which has been designated as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
The Sacramento region reflects the growing diverse Asian Pacific population of California. To honor and celebrate that cultural richness and ethnic diversity, Restaurateur Frank Fat and community leaders created the Pacific Rim Street Fest in 1993.
The street fest is planned and staged by volunteers from more than 15 Asian Pacific community groups. Their goals are to broaden the awareness and understanding of the Asian Pacific heritage, to showcase the many positive contributions to the community at large, and to lend support to cultural endeavors in the form of grants and scholarships.
The event is supported by major industries and community groups throughout Northern California, including the Sacramento Bee, Wells Fargo, KCRA/MY58, and the Sacramento Downtown Plaza. Be an important part of this exciting event!
