Dine Downtown 2021


Sacramento’s favorite culinary celebration, Dine Downtown presented by Kaiser Permanente, is growing with some exciting new changes!

  • Now spanning 3 weekends! Dine Downtown will extend to run January 8 – 24, 2021.
  • New, flexible price points! You choose – $25, $35 or $45 – for your 3-course, prix fixe menu. Restaurants can also choose to host Dine Downtown menus during brunch, lunch AND/OR dinner – at different price points, if desired.
  • Eat in, or take out! You can decide if menus will be offered for dine-in only, or to-go, or both!
  • Advance purchase! We will link to purchase gift cards (must offer online) to encourage holiday gifting as part of our Dine Downtown promotions, so sign up early!
As the Farm-to-Fork Capital, Sacramento has become a foodie destination highlighting the culinary talents of our local chefs. We’ve reengineered the annual dining program to provide flexibility as indoor dining guidelines (may) change and reinforce reservations and best practices to stay safe and healthy.


We know that every dollar counts, so the formal $1 community donation per meal will pause for the 2021 program. If you wish to continue the $1 donation, we can connect you directly to recommended beneficiaries. Additionally, the co-op participation fee structure is changing for 2021. The Downtown Sacramento Partnership is covering administrative and printing fees for all restaurants located in the Downtown District boundaries (see map). Fees for restaurants on the grid, located beyond the district boundaries (see map), have been reduced to $100. Reduced fees leave us with a big hold to fill for paid advertising but fortunately, many of our partners are willing to trade cash for gift cards! So, all restaurants are required to provide 5 – $50 gift cards (a total of $250) to support promotions efforts with radio, print and social media influencers.

Applications for Dine Downtown 2021 are now closed.
