Grab your flashlights and lanterns, or purchase them from us at the door, as we illuminate history and raise funds for school programs at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park.  Flashlights and Friends is a unique opportunity to take a self-guided tour of Sutter’s Fort after dark under the winter sky in Midtown, Sacramento.

While you explore the historic structures at your own pace:

Watch Demonstrations
Learn about the history of Sutter’s Fort SHP
Enjoy crafts
Listen to holiday music
Take photos
Shop at the Museum Store for holiday gifts

Girl Scouts may also sign up to participate in our Flashlights & Friends fun patch program. On arrival, they will get a checklist of activities to complete. Once they do, they can redeem the checklist for a fun patch.

Purchase your tickets to Flashlights & Friends online. Please select the time you plan to arrive at the event. All attendees must have a ticket.
