Sacramento Walk of Stars pays tribute to those who have affected the nation or the world for the better while contributing to the shining light of Sacramento. Four to five inductees are recognized each year for their achievements in entertainment & arts, sports, news, business and science & technology. They must also have:

  • Lived or been raised in the greater Sacramento region 
  • National or international significance

On August 31, 2016, the inaugural inductees participated in a ceremony in Sacramento with their families and guests for the unveiling of their stars in front of 1801 L Street and a gala dinner that evening at the Memorial Auditorium.
