Festival Description

The Launch Festival is an annual celebration of music, art, fashion, design and architecture that takes place in Sacramento. Since its inception in 2009, Launch has grown from a single day event highlighting talent from the local community to a six-day celebration of local, regional and internationally acclaimed artists, designers and creatives. Hosted at multiple venues throughout midtown and downtown Sacramento, Launch is curated by some of the brightest artists in and around Sacramento to not only showcase their peers, but also introduce the community to a new generation of talent across multiple artistic platforms.
