Welcome to the Sacramento LocalWiki!

A website about Sacramento that anyone can edit

I want to make a page about

Featured Page

Mural outside Old Soul Coffee.

Public Art is one of the many interesting aspects of Sacramento's culture - you don't even need to visit one of Sacramento's museums or art galleries to be an appreciator of art. The Art in Public Places program sponsors hundreds of pieces of art in (you guessed it) public places, by local artists. But those aren't the only pieces of art around. There are murals, for example the mural on the wall of Old Soul Coffee.

You can also help feature another page.


Mystery Picture

Can you guess where in or around Sacramento this picture was taken, or identify its contents?

LocalWiki News

February 23, 2013 We are having a meetup about the SacWiki at the Code for America brigade! Help us re-launch the wiki in 2013.

January 12, 2011 Come to a meet-up to contribute to Sacwiki! We'll be meeting every Thursday from 2pm - 4pm at the Sacramento Public Library, Central Branch (828 I Street, Sacramento). We'll meet on the second floor, at the tables to the right of the stairs/elevator. Look for a sign with the Sacwiki logo. Come meet fellow editors, and play around with the new site, which looks beautiful! Check out Wiki Gathering for more details (important as future meet-ups may have different times/locations).

December 12, 2011 Our site is about to get a whole lot cooler - Localwiki has designed a whole new site for us! It will be rolled out in the next few days. Before it's rolled out, want to play with the new Localwiki code? It's up on a test site for Sacwiki. Also, we'll start having community edit days soon - probably in a coffee shop somewhere. Post on the Facebook page if you're interested in coming to one.

November 7, 2011 So far two professors are (or will be) working with their classes to improve Sacwiki. Cynthia Linville's Sac State class has been adding local services & organizations, and Patty Felkner's Cosumnes River College photography class will be taking photographs around town to add to Sacwiki. Service learning at its best! (There are more professors we're talking to - more news soon!)

November 3, 2011 Created a wiki style guide page to explain editing conventions.

Want more updates?  Check us out on Twitter and Facebook.  We also have a mailing list for editors to chat with each other.
