Throughout October, DOCO (Downtown Commons) introduced a series of fun and free “On the Green” pop-up activations happening on the inviting outdoor plaza adjacent to Golden 1 Center and surrounded by a mix of locally-owned and national retailers, restaurants, bars and other engaging businesses that will continue to open on a rolling basis in the coming weeks.
Silent Disco “On the Green” – October 26 from 7 to 10 p.m.
Upbeat and popular local DJ’s will spin different music styles heard only through individual free headsets available to check-out and borrow (while supplies last) for a unique outdoor music experience in the heart of downtown Sacramento. Interested guests can take their pick of musical styles and dance the night away to one of the three talented DJ’s on-site. Spectators are welcome to watch the entertaining experience as well.
Movies “On the Green” – October 28 from 7:30 to 10 p.m.
Guests of all ages will enjoy a memorable movie experience of Disney’s “COCO” on a 25-foot outdoor movie screen on special display at DOCO plaza.

Participants are encouraged to bring a blanket or borrow one available on-site (while supplies last); no lawn chairs please.
Leading up to the movie showing, DOCO has partnered with Sol Collective to offer free activities for children that will include making Dia de los Muertos paper marigolds and having their faces painted in traditional designs. The free hands-on crafts will begin at 5:30 p.m. and guests of all ages are welcome. Additionally, Telemundo (T33) will be on-site to meet guests and introduce the movie. While movie viewing is free, guests who make a minimum $20 DOCO food purchase between 6-9 p.m. on the day of the event can enter and enjoy a special VIP seating area for an optimal experience.
