With an endless list of festivals happening in August, we have selected a handful of can’t-miss events in Northern California. From San Jose to Sacramento, you are guaranteed fun all summer along the Capitol Corridor!
San Jose is the southernmost stop on the Capitol Corridor’s 170-mile route and it holds the title as the largest city of Northern California and (perhaps more notably) the nickname “The Capital of Silicon Valley.” Standing tall in the Santa Clara Valley, this is where a skyline of cutting-edge tech companies meets the mountainous backdrop of the Diablo Range.
