Nine months after news initially broke that Orangevale's longtime rock venue, The Boardwalk, was being put up for sale - the venue made it official with an announcement on Tuesday that they are closed for good, effective immediately.

Venue owner Mark Earl had brought shows to Orangevale for decades prior to his death in November 2020 and his wife Sandy Silk-Earl has been seeking a buyer who would keep The Boardwalk a music venue. At its previously listed $1.2 million price they haven't found a buyer who's been willing to promise that.
