Member Events

Members of Friends of Sutter’s Fort have access to a variety of events taking place year-round. These events provide opportunities to take a closer look at the history of Sutter’s Fort and the people who once lived, worked and visited the Fort and the Sacramento region in the 1800s.

Please note that all events scheduled for 2020 have been postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. 

Members learn about documents related to Sutter’s Fort during a tour of the Vault at the California State Library.

Member events also allow opportunities to learn more about the programs we support and the work that we do year-round to preserve the historic grounds and structures, as well as important artifacts that are housed both at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park, and at the State Museum Collection Center.

Friends of Sutter’s Fort encourages members to join us for these events and dive deeper into the history of Sutter’s Fort. Whenever possible, our member events are free, or at a discounted cost.
