Visitors to the California State Capitol in downtown Sacramento on California Admission Day – Monday, September 9, 2024 — are in for a special treat. The California State Capitol Museum Volunteer Association invites the community to celebrate California’s 174th birthday, which is known as Admission Day. California entered the Union on September 9, 1850, and became the 31st state.

The community is invited to commemorate this special date for the Golden State with free cake and ice cream (while supplies last), served by volunteers dressed in historic attire. Attendees will also enjoy entertaining live music performed by a youth choir singing rousing songs of the 1850s. The fun, free and family-friendly event runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and takes place on the west steps of the State Capitol Building. The California State Capitol Museum Volunteer Association (CSCMVA) is a volunteer cooperating association partnering with the California State Parks to promote educational and interpretive activities at the California State Capitol Museum. Information about volunteering is available at www.capitolmuseum.ca.gov/about/volunteer. And, for more information about the California State Capitol Museum, please call 916-324-0333 or visit www.capitolmuseum.ca.gov.
