Visitors will enjoy live music, historic trade demonstrations and a merchants market. There will be gold panning contests for kids and adults as well as sawmill demonstrations and historic re-enactments so you can feel as if you are rubbing shoulders with the adventurers and historical figures who helped create the world-wide rush to California.

This was great fun to be at!

 I traveled up from Columbia with a small band of Docents in 1850s outfits on Sunday, and was very impressed with their set up. I also learned a few more things about the people who discovered gold, too.
