Meet the finalists

Five businesses have been identified as this year’s finalists for the Downtown Sacramento Partnership’s Calling All Dreamers contest. The business incubation program provides mentorship for local entrepreneurs, with a chance of winning a start-up package that includes a storefront location in Downtown.

This year’s finalists are:

The Dreamland Cinema

This micro-cinema (1901 P St.) brings independent + arthouse films to Midtown in an intimate setting — and they hope to relocate to a larger space soon. We actually spoke to owners Tish and Lauren shortly after they opened in June 2022.

Capital Tuk Tuk

Catch an eco-friendly, three-wheeled lift from this tour company (3810 Broadway, Ste. 219), which offers both custom and pre-curated tours, like its tour of Sac murals.


This brand uses locally sourced natural + organic ingredients to hand-make its up-cycled goods, which range from soaps and makeup to cutlery and pillows.

Planted Foods

We’d tell you that you have to try this company’s plant-based eats to believe how good they are — but they’re so good, they’re currently sold out. The brand is hoping to be selected as this year’s winner, which would help make its desired Downtown cafe a reality.

Nouvelle Healing

Reiki sessions, guided meditations, sound baths, and more are all part of this company’s (1909 Capitol Ave., Ste. 302) holistic approach to wellness.
