|| Copperopolis' Homecoming Celebration
California’s historic town of Copperopolis turned 150 years old in 2010. We continue celebrate our unique little town with an annual Homecoming Celebration and want to invite everyone who loves small town charm to join us. Copperopolis’ Homecoming was started by our founding families for an annual get together. Now everyone is welcome for a celebration fitting a town that saw Black Bart’s first and last stage coach robbery, hosted Mark Twain at a town social, had one of the country’s richest copper mines and a family owned Telephone Company. The traditional pancake breakfast will be the first event of the day held in the Armory. Vendors will be selling their wares in the Armory under a canopy of beautiful handmade quilts from the Copper Quilters. Our “Locally World Famous” Homecoming Parade will feature an array of colorful characters, gunfighters, saddle queens, citizens, politicians and animals both tame and wild. Family fun, BBQ and Parade Awards will follow at Copper Fire Station 1 on Main Street (O’Byrnes Ferry Rd.) across from the Post Office.

"Zucca After Hours is open 5-8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
If you're looking for a cozy spot to enjoy a glass of wine on a Friday or Saturday night, the Zucca garden is your place. Because all those firepits are even better to sit by on a cool winter evening.
If the weather is yucky, no problem, we've got some nice bar seating in the Toscano room.
Oh, and we always welcome your picnic items or takeout from area restaurants should you want to make a night of it."
