Founded in 1850, Elk Grove was a stage stop for people traveling between Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area. Old Town Elk Grove is the heart of the community; a unique treasure with many buildings dating back to the 1800’s.

Elk Grove is a fast-paced, thriving community located in the heart of Sacramento County. Just minutes away from the state capitol, the city manages to maintain its small town charm while mixing big city amenities with a strong sense of community.

Elk Grove residents enjoy a variety of art and cultural events such as the Giant Pumpkin Festival, Strauss Festival, Multi-Cultural Festival, and during the holidays, the Old Town Dickens Festival and Town Tree Lighting.

Locals enjoy premier wine tasting at vineyards both in town and nearby such as Scribner Bend, McConnell Estates, Bogle and Beringer. Don’t miss the Old Sugar Mill just 20 minutes west on the Sacramento River where you can find the ultimate ‘daycation.’ The Old Sugar Mill is home to a unique community of eleven California wineries and their signature wines. Small craft vendors and art walks are featured year round.

We like to say Elk Grove is a place where business, family and quality of life  meet!
