Elk Grove is a city in Sacramento County, California, located just south of the state capital of Sacramento. It is part of the Sacramento–Arden-Arcade–Roseville Metropolitan Statistical Area. Elk Grove has something for everyone. Home to over 93 parks, 18 miles of off-street trails, a historic downtown, community and recreation centers, and aquatics complexes. For meetings & events, Elk Grove is the perfect place to host your next event. And while you are there, you can enjoy shopping, dining, outdoor activities, special events and festivals for all ages. Elk Grove holds spectacular events throughout the year beginning in March with the Green Gauntlet fitness challenge, Go Fest in April, Boots on the Boulevard in May, Big Truck Day in May, A Salute to the Red White and Blue in July and more events throughout the year. Eastern Elk Grove shows a sure contrast to the western parts. This is an area that once typified the entire community – this is Rural Elk Grove. Cattle and horses roam the open space, fruits and veggies ripen to perfection, leaves from the great oaks and eucalyptus rustle in the breeze, wildlife find refuge, and the pace of life simply slows down. This is the place that represents Elk Grove’s “Proud Heritage” and agricultural roots. The rural Elk Grove community is a valuable asset to be preserved and appreciated (and City policies ensure this). Just minutes from the hustle and bustle, rural Elk Grove is a place that gives us a genuine taste of a rural lifestyle, providing a scenic backdrop of country living and reminding us that Elk Grove’s past is still a big part of our present-day city.
