Murphys, CA...Order Your Fresh Christmas Wreaths & Support Bret Harte Grad Night!

11/20/2017 - Angels Camp Rings in the Holidays with Silver Bells
Angels Camp, CA...The Angels Camp Business Association presents the grand kick-off to local holiday celebrations on Saturday, Nov. 25 with the sixth annual Christmas of Angels Open House and Wine Stroll from 4 to 8 p.m. and the 27th annual Parade of Lights beginning at 5 p.m. in historic downtown Angels Camp, rain or shine. The theme for this year’s holiday festivities - “City of Angels Winter Wonderland.”

“This evening full of cheer is sure to get you in the holiday spirit! We are dedicated to making this an event that is fun for the whole family. Between the decorations, lights, caroling, Santa and the parade, it really gets you in the holiday spirit, plus you get to cross many items off your Christmas shopping list knowing you’re supporting the local economy,” exclaimed Marilyn Smith, ACBA Board Member and this year’s coordinator of Christmas events.

The festivities will begin at the annual Bough Making Party Nov. 20 starting at 5:30 p.m. at Wayne and Son Automotive, 329 N. Main St., Angels Camp. Refreshments will be served and bough makers are encouraged to bring gloves and wire cutters. Every year volunteers make over two hundred boughs using fresh forest greens and big red bows that are hung on poles from the North end of town to the very end of South Main Street.

During the Open House, Historic Downtown Main Street merchants will be offering a number of special discounts starting at 4 p.m., as well as festive treats and beverages, and local wineries will be offering tastings. Commemorative glasses can be purchased for $5. The holiday ambiance is enhanced by caroling with the Rock Forge Group. Caroling begins at 4:15 p.m. in front of the Calaveras Visitor’s Center and the City tree will be lighted there at 4:30 p.m. “Come early,” says Smith. “Enjoy an early dinner at one of the downtown restaurants, wine tasting and shopping at stores and pop-up shops.”

The Parade of Lights commences at 5 p.m. at St. Patrick’s Church, 820 S. Main St., showcasing a wide range of entries. Awards for parade entries will be presented in the following categories: best float, vintage vehicle, horse group, musical group, school, business, individual and other. Entry fee is $20 and forms are available online at or by calling the ACBA office, 736-1333. After the parade Santa will hear children’s wishes on the porch of the Calaveras Visitors Center with photo opportunities.

Anne Forrest and Bob Fienberg have been chosen as the Grand Marshals of the Parade for their countless volunteer hours to Angels Camp and Calaveras County.

“We are honored to have Bob and Anne as our Grand Marshals this year,” says Smith. “Their tireless efforts have been instrumental in many of the organizations and events that serve the residents, business owners and visitors of Angels Camp.”

In addition, the annual Christmas Gala will be held at Camps Restaurant starting at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4th featuring a holiday buffet dinner, live music, dancing and live and silent auctions. Cost is $50 and tickets are available at, in Angels Camp at the ACBA Office, Middleton’s and Turner’s Wild West.

For more information, visit or call the ACBA office at (209) 736-1333.

12/01/2017 - Murphys Open House, December 1, 2017, 5-8 pm Presented by the Murphys Business Association
Murphys, CA...Every year on the first Friday in December, Murphys celebrates the start of the holiday season with a community Open House from 5 to 8 pm on Historic Main Street. Admission is free, the streets are closed to traffic and we are ready to celebrate the winter holidays. Chestnuts will be roasting, carolers will be singing, and Santa will be visiting! A favorite of locals, the annual event is an old-fashioned celebration featuring a parade, holiday treats and entertainment hosted by Main Street merchants, restaurants, wineries and the Murphys Business Association. Santa arrives with the parade and stays for photos with the kids in the Native Sons Hall. Bring your phone or camera to snap a picture. The New Horizon Band will be providing music in the Native Sons Hall and Road Trip Espresso will be offering hot drinks for sale nearby.

Each year the merchants, wineries and other businesses of Murphys put on this event to help all of us find our holiday spirit, let us show off our town and, most importantly, to say thank you to locals and visitors for their support throughout the year.

The parade begins promptly at 5:30 pm starting at the Historic Murphys Hotel and continues to Big Trees Road, so come early and grab a good spot.

Open House is a fun time to visit Murphys’ shops, tasting rooms and restaurants, see what’s new and visit with friends, old and new, while warming yourself around the fire-pits manned by our local Boy Scouts. It's also good time to check out some of the new businesses in town: Broll Mountain Vineyards is now down in the middle of town, Kola Farms General Store & Tasting Room is open, Gabby’s is open in the Arbors and there’s going to be lots to see. Center right off the patio with the Christmas Tree. Make sure you wander all of Main Street including our side streets and nooks and crannies just off Main Street. Take a moment to admire the town tree located on the Arbors patio and provided by Ironstone Vineyards. If you are planning on having dinner downtown you might want to make reservations early.

Free parking is available at the Masonic Hall and behind the Arbors as well as on surrounding streets but please be considerate of the residents when selecting a parking place. The Black Bart Theater parking lot will be closed for parade staging until about 6:30pm. There will be no parking on Main Street during the event.

The Calaveras Wine Alliance will be celebrating their Festival of Wines in Murphys on Friday evening and at wineries throughout the county over the weekend so plan to visit Murphys and other Calaveras County wineries for entertainment, specials and more on Saturday & Sunday. Don’t forget that you can ride the Saturday Hopper bus from Valley Springs to Murphys and points in between on Saturdays.
