Downtown Sacramento Partnership Launches “Welcome Back to Downtown Sac” Giveaway Program with Coveted Prize Packages

(August 11, 2021) – In partnership with the City of Sacramento, Downtown Sacramento Partnership is proud to launch a “Welcome Back to Downtown Sac” giveaway program designed to recognize and reward fully vaccinated workers who have returned to their downtown offices and who have continued to drive much-needed recovery for local businesses, restaurants, and retailers. Each week from August 18 to September 22, one winner will be randomly selected to receive a coveted prize package for two valued at approximately $550.

Prize packages will vary each week and include special experiences, overnight stays, and valuable gift cards. Examples of prizes include tickets to Visit Sacramento’s iconic Farm-to-Fork Tower Bridge dinner, 3-day VIP backstage passes to Aftershock Festival, tickets to popular Broadway Sacramento shows, tickets to Golden 1 Center events, Downtown Dollars e-gift cards to downtown restaurants and retailers, and more.

All employees currently working and/or returning to work in downtown Sacramento – in gyms, offices, restaurants, retail establishments and event venues, along with those in personal and professional service fields – are eligible if they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (City of Sacramento employees are not eligible for this giveaway). Downtown workers are encouraged to enter early as they only need to apply once to be eligible for each week’s drawings. To enter the “Welcome Back to Downtown Sac” giveaway, downtown workers are encouraged to enter here.

“We are thrilled to welcome workers safely back to downtown Sacramento and are committed to identifying innovative ways to support a full recovery for our valued downtown businesses, restaurants and shops that have experienced and survived an incredibly challenging 18 months,” said Michael Ault, Executive Director of Downtown Sacramento.

The first winner will be randomly drawn on Monday, August 16 and will be announced at noon on Wednesday August 18 at the Downtown Certified Farmers’ Market (winner must be 21 years or older and must be present to win). The first prize package will include the following:

  • Two tickets to the Farm-to-Fork Tower Bridge dinner scheduled for September 12
  • An overnight stay for two at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel
  • A $50 Downtown Dollars e-gift card

Each weekly winner will be announced on Wednesdays at noon at the Downtown Certified Farmers’ Market on Capitol Mall. To find more ways to support downtown businesses, restaurants and retailers, please visit

With community safety in mind, the “Welcome Back to Downtown Sac” is a continuation of a marketing campaign led by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership titled “We are Downtown. Together.” Tapping into a deep sense of pride for downtown Sacramento, the campaign has featured a variety of new programs such as the “Keep COVID In Check” initiative, special activations, advertising, and signage support, and more, all are made possible by the area’s property-based improvement district (PBID), Downtown Sacramento Partnership.
