Sacramento Archives Crawl 2021: "Preserving Perseverance"

Greetings gentle crawlers. It's been a year unlike few others - one demanding the guile, strength and perseverance of all of us living in the Sacramento Region. Accordingly, the theme for the 2021 Sacramento Archives Crawl will be "Preserving Perseverance," a deep dive into all the ways that our indomitable city, county, and region has risen above the myriad challenges placed before it, from pre-European contact to today. 

Staying on the safe side of things, we are - again - making the crawl virtual, but not without some exciting enhancements to what you saw last year! Expect more "live" programming and return to the always fun opportunity to win stuff through our traditional scavenger hunt and some well placed virtual pub quizes. We loved interacting with you in 2020 and look forward to another exciting October. 

Check back with this page or our Facebook page for updates as we move closer to "Preserving Perseverance."
