The Sacramento Walking Sticks is the Nation's largest AVA affiliated walking club! We started in November 1984 and are a non-profit organization that is run 100% by volunteers. We are associated with:
All of our events:

Ice Cream Walk!
August 13 & 14, 2019

Vic's and Gunther's signs
Sacramento’s warm summer nights are the perfect opportunity to eat ice cream at its two locally owned ice creameries in the Land Park and Curtis Park neighborhoods: Vic's and Gunther’s. If you didn’t get enough on the previous night or if you couldn’t make it, there is another opportunity on Thursday morning to sample the tasty treats at these creameries. The walk between the two is a lovely shady stroll through upscale neighborhoods with classic 20's and 30's homes. Join the Sacramento Walking Sticks for this annual fun event and bring the family!
