All Day Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee....We are back May 19-22, 2022
Frogtown, USA...The Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee is one of the longest running events in the State of California. Its earliest roots date back to 1893, held that year in Copperopolis. The fair eventually found a permanent home outside of Angels Camp. In the spirit of the old movie classic "State Fair," the Calaveras County Fair is a blend of entertainment, exhibits, livestock, arena events, great food and our signature event, the International Frog Jump. This piece of Americana will have you Leaping to return year after year.

Today, few events illustrate the gold rush era, as well as the Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee. Every May the entire community celebrates its history and its future. The tradition of county residents showing off their best still holds true today. The Calaveras County Fair has as many as 7000 exhibits. The junior livestock auction generated over $350,000 for the county's youth.
The Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee has grown to an event with more than 45,000 attendees. It is estimated that the Calaveras County Fair generates approximately $25.5 million in revenues through hotels, restaurants, retail, payroll and other related revenues.
All Day Columbia Diggins Tent Town 1852! May 19 - 21
Columbia, CA...Columbia State Historic Park will present “Diggins Tent Town 1852”, a special living history event that recreates a 1852 tent town from the California Gold Rush from May 19 through May 21, 2022. Supporting this event will be over 150 costumed volunteers assisting park visitors as they experience the 1852 mining camp that is re-created in detail with period-accurate clothing, buildings, food and entertainment.

This living history event leads visitors through life in 1852 Columbia. This includes the powerful stories of early miners, women in the mines, and their politics and daily events. Meet the merchants, artisans and entertainers who have come to the Diggins to “mine the miners’ pockets.” Interact with and observe the lifestyles of the early miners as they prepare their meals, launder their clothing, and care for gardens and livestock. Learn about their crafts, how their children played, their music and other forms of entertainment – including gambling! A variety of foods, drinks and other items are available for purchase inside the event.

Open from 10am to 4pm daily. Admission to Columbia “Diggins 1852” is $10 per adult, $2 per child ages 4 through 12, and children 3 and under are free. There is no charge for parking or admission to the park.

Sponsored by the non-profit organization Friends of Columbia State Historic Park and Columbia State Historic Park.
