The Boardwalk, established in 1987 by Mark Earl, has been an historic force in the Sacramento music scene. The Covid-19 pandemic and Earl’s passing in November of 2020 resulted in the permanent closure of the venue in January 2022. Nine months later Derek Clark and Sara Green, owner’s of Orangevale’s Palm Tree Brewing Company 1 deposit casino nz.com, purchased the property and the intellectual rights to the venue and spent months revamping the space, and installing state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems.
In addition to hosting up-and-coming and national live music acts, the venue is
committed to creating a welcoming environment for all visitors. The Hawaiian-inspired food and craft cocktail menus are a testament to Derek and Sara’s dedication to offering something unique and memorable to their customers. With the venue now open seven days a week, there are even more opportunities to experience the great atmosphere of The Boardwalk.
Derek and Sara, who met volunteering at the local food bank, share the philosophy that you shouldn’t take more than you can give. They have personally donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to non-profits including, Make A Wish Foundation, Central Park Conservancy, Orangevale-Fair Oaks Food band and Save the American River Association. Their shared commitment to give-back extends to their vision for The Boardwalk; all door profits from concerts are donated to local and regional non-profits.
The Boardwalk is particularly focused on helping veterans, families, and pets at risk.
