Hoe-down! Whiskerino Dinner Dance is April 14th

Angels Camp, CA....(Frogtown, USA)The Friends of the Calaveras County Fair and the Junior Livestock Committee are hosting a Hoe-down, Show-down. The Whiskerino Dinner Dance is planned for April 14. The dinner dance will be the official kick-off event leading up to the Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee May 17-20. The Whiskerino has a fine historic tradition in Calaveras County. Although the Whiskerino dates back to the 1940s it was revitalized in the 1950's and held for the next forty years. In 1955 Bob Petithome, Angels Camp resident, won the award for best full beard. He says the best part of the event was seeing "all the slick chins" try to grow beards. The event marked the month long Jubilee. Originally held at the Gun Club adjacent to the Fairgrounds, men and women donned their best gold rush attire. However the biggest draw was the actual whisker competitions.






In recent years the Friends of the Fair has rejuvenated the annual event. Partnering with the Junior Livestock Committee funds are raised to make improvements to the Fairgrounds and support the livestock program.

It it the Fair's kickoff event. The food is great, catered by Lightening Q Catering, Plan B is the band, bounce house for the kids and the competitions are crazy fun!


Event occurs on 04/14/2018 from 06:00 PM to .
