The 2019 Whiskerino Dinner Dance is April 6th

Angels Camp, CA...(Frogtown USA)..The Friends of Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee, in partnership with the Junior Livestock Committee, will host their annual Whiskerino Dinner Dance on Saturday April 6 at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds at 6:00pm. This is a signature event and marks the kick-off to the Fair. In the fall of 2008, a group of Calaveras County residents decided to form a foundation with the purpose to enhance, support and create additional community involvement and participation while maintaining the amazing history the Fair enjoys. Friends of the Calaveras County Fair are continuously working on new projects and upgrades for the fairgrounds. The Junior Livestock Committee manages the annual junior livestock show and auction, while maintaining the livestock barns and facilities. The Junior Livestock Committee’s Auction provides the community an opportunity to invest in our youth and their future.





The Whiskerino Dinner Dance has a fine historic tradition in Calaveras County. The Whiskerino event dates back to the 1940s and was revitalized in the 1950’s and held for the next forty years. Along with the traditional Whiskerino contest, this year’s event will have a new band named Gunpowder and Lace, a local country band who will perform both past and present country hits.

Tickets are $25each or $230 for a table of 10 and can be purchased by calling 209.736.7838 or visiting www.friendsofthecalaverascountyfair.org. Please note tickets will not be sold at the door.

The Friends of the Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee Association is classified by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Our EIN is 26-2632501 and our DLN #170532253299938.


Event occurs on 04/06/2019 from 06:00 PM to .

This article references “history” and “tradition” and “contest” but doesn’t tell WHAT the event is...never heard of it, so please expand and explain the “Whiskerino” name.
Thanks!

    Agreed. It's like they want to keep the event closed to the fourth and fifth generation families. Or don't quite understand why fair support and attendance dwindles.

      You are rude, and clueless. It is even advertised in the Modesto Bee. Again learn how to use your computers search engine.

        The poster simply asked for more information the flyer doesn't provide and why we are "clueless." Can tell like many a Trump supporter you revert to bullying and name calling versus trying to understand why someone might have a question. An introductory paragraph would have been helpful.

Why not just place a considerable charge on everyone, including tourist, who actually use the Ebbetts Pass Fire Dept. services? The services would then level up or down to the actual need. Residents should not be responsible for the charges of tourists. It would also help to encourage the elderly who should not live in the more isolated area to move.

    Tourists passing through support local business. Why should they also support the ability of the local fire department to respond to a fire if they're not a homeowner? With ownership comes responsibility. Stop looking for visitors - whom many of you criticize and ridicule - to support local services.

      If their bad driving gets them in an accident.
      If their unhealthy eating and being obese causes a heart attack in a motel room.
      If they fall off a cliff because they went to close to it.
      If they try to pet a mountain lion or skunk.
      etc., etc., etc....................
      Why should they not be billed for THEIR emergency services?

        We, I thought, were discussing the EPFD measure. Yes, visitors are sometimes the beneficiary of local services but the reality is how to assess someone simply passing through? The only reliable roster (and those who vote) is via home ownership. Besides, visitors leave their money here with local business and many business owners would tell you they couldn't survive without the tourist trade. Those same businesses, by the way, who often provide what few jobs there are in this county.

          Businesses only catering to tourists should kick in the larger amount for the emergency and medical services used by tourists.

When you can't breath and your eyes are rolled to the back of your head tell the guy in the red suit and pitch fork that EPFD said Hello!

    Did you ever think when a hearse goes by that some day you are gonna die? They wrap you up in a big white sheet, and drop you down about fifty feet. The first few months and all goes well, but then the boards begin to swell. The bugs crawl in, the worms crawl out. They climb all over your slimy snout. Your body turns a ghastly green. Your blood comes out like whipping cream.

Ha! I am the first poster back after a long day in the valley. This is hilarious and stupid! I have lived in Arnold for 33 years, work in Murphys, and never attended this event. So, I simply pointed out the lack of info in the flyer and in the article. Whiskers contest! Ok, nuff said. Not my jam, but have fun. No need to reprint what I already read and referenced in my question.

In the future, don’t jump to conclusions when actually speaking to a local woman. You certainly have pent up anger.
And, although the troll is only one person (maybe two at most, hopefully),.... you make us all sound so stupid and ungrateful for all those awesome tourists who choose to enjoy our towns and spend their vacation dollars with us. Geez. Get a clue.

    John hamilton and his hillbilly moron fans have a passion for utter discrimination and clueless off topic rambles. It's not transplants or tourists throwing trash out of their cars or dumping truck loads of garbage onto the sides of our country roads. Get a clue hypocrites and keep lying to yourselves it will get you super far. Attacking someone over a stupid event. And screw the frog humps and you angry anal crampers.
