From a town started by disappointed Gold Rush miners, Roseville has blossomed into one of the major retail areas in the Sacramento region. Roseville event venues grace its historic Old Town. Revitalization plans in the work for Old Town include a new town square, with a stage for concerts and plays, an interactive water feature and fire pits, a large grassy area, and spaces for vendors to set up for festivals/markets. It will all be a pedestrian-friendly area, with three bridges connecting downtown to Royer Park, a large green space across a waterway that features outdoor concerts in the spring and summer
Roseville is 16 miles from Sacramento International Airport, which is served by Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways, Aeromexico, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, and Southwest Airlines. Transportation is available by taxi, shuttle bus and rental car. Shuttle buses average $35 one way per person.
While there are no official convention venues in Roseville, the city does provide a handful of venues that work well for meetings. Roseville city facilities include Riley Library, with a function room that accommodates a meeting of up to 152; the Roseville Sports Center, with a 10,000-square-foot gymnasium that can handle 674 people; and the Maidu Community Center, which offers seven function rooms and can host a meeting for up to 240 people. Nearby Timber Creek Ballroom, a facility located at Sun City Roseville (a planned community), can seat up to 300 people.
Hotel venues in Roseville include the 97-room Heritage Inn Express Roseville, which has about 4,000 square feet of function space; the 179-room Orchid Suites, which offers 1,500 square feet of meeting space; and the 151-room Hyatt Place Sacramento/Roseville and 131-room Hilton Garden Inn, both of which offer just over 1,200 square feet of function space. Among Roseville hotels are five other properties that each offer just over 600 square feet of meeting space: the 125-room Best Western Roseville Inn, the 111-room Homewood Suites, the 125-room Courtyard by Marriott, Galleria, the 115-room TownPlace Suites by Marriott and the 90-room Larkspur Landing hotel.
Two of Roseville's most popular venues for special events are historic theaters: the circa 1940, 275-seat Tower Theater and the 500-seat Roseville Theater (which was built in the late 1920s). Other special event facilities in Roseville include The Clubhouse at Woodcreek Golf Club, which can host gatherings of up to 200 people, and Maidu Museum & Historic Site, where an event can be held among exhibits portraying the Maidu way of life and include the historic site that was home to the Nisenan (Southern Maidu) people for thousands of years.
Roseville restaurants provide both elegant experiences and a rollicking good time. In the setting of a French country-style estate, La Provence Restaurant serves the flavors of France and the Mediterranean regions prepared with California style, while Paul Martin's American Bistro stays close to its founding philosophy of fresh organic sustainable cuisine. At Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar diners find 100 choices of sushi rolls. And on the thoroughly fun side, Rock-n-roll Hall of Fame singer Sammy Hagar recently opened Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar & Grill; and Yard House boasts one of the largest selections of beers in the area, served with an All-American menu to the tune of classic rock music.
