10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Old Timers Museum Walking Tours Are Every Saturday at 10am.
Murphys, CA...Each Saturday morning the Old Timers Museum in Murphys offers a historical walking tour of Murphys. No reservation necessary. Meet at the Museum, 470 Main St, Murphys, across from the Hotel 10 am. Walk is 1-1/12 hours.


A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stone walls, iron shutters and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Once you experience the charm and hospitality of Murphys, the historic “Queen of the Sierra”, you’ll want to come back again and again!

Rich in Gold Rush History, Murphys today is a vibrant, thriving community of over 2,000 residents. Many of the surrounding hillsides are rich with the fine wine grapes grown in our area. Murphys offers wineries, art galleries, live theater, eclectic shops, fine restaurants, charming hotels and B&B’s as well as a multitude of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Murphys’ colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party – the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy families – to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration. John and Daniel’s cries of “Gold!” were among the first heard in California. It is reported that the brothers took two million dollars in gold ore from the Murphys Diggins in one year’s time, making them millionaires before the age of 25. The sizzling Gold Rush camp of Murphys also played host to President Grant, Mark Twain and Black Bart. And in some circles, to an even more famous chap – a young, inquisitive lad who literally changed the scientific world, Dr. Albert Michelson.

Our friendly residents invite you to revisit the past while exploring the “new” upscale Murphys. Guided walking tours of the town’s many historic buildings including the home of Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner, are conducted every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., starting in front of the Old Timers Museum on Main Street.

06:00 PM 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.
