As the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SAHCC) celebrates its 50th Anniversary, we are excited to celebrate our history, to recognize the people and businesses that have shared in our journey, and to focus ahead on our role as a champion for a more prosperous and inclusive economy for Hispanics across the Sacramento region. Onward!

Our 50th Anniversary will be like no other, because our community is like no other! It will be an experience to remember. Special performance by Dance On the Edge, Sac Dance Lab, Carlos Kandia, Mariachi Bonitas, and mucho más.


When and where will I be able to watch them?

The Salud! Business Awards recipients will be honored with a special television show. First, the SACHCC Board Leadership will share their insights on the past year and present a sneak preview of the digital event on September 8th at Golden1 Center. Soon after, Telemundo 33 will be presenting a bilingual documentary-style televised special highlighting the award winners and the impact of the Hispanic community to the regional economy.
