Amador Four Fires Festival
Taking place in early May, the Amador Four Fires Festival is a spectacular event definitely worth attending. It takes place at the Amador County Fairgrounds that is then divided into four sections each representing an iconic wine region. These four famous wine regions include Southern France, Spain/Portugal, Italy, and California. In each section, you can indulge with delicious wines and foods from that region. Local chefs team up with world-famous vineyards to create amazing food and wine pairings. All the food is cooked on an open fire and you will not want to miss this amazing culinary and cultural event!
The Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee
This fun festival comes with a special history. Mark Twain’s first famous writing, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” made this area famous worldwide. To commemorate Twain’s story and its impact on Calaveras County, the Jumping Frog Jubilee is celebrated every year during the 3rd week of May. You can eat creatively delicious fair foods, listen to live local music, and, of course, watch the pinnacle event: the frog jumping competition. You can even participate yourself in the frog jump! Ask us how. This is fun for everyone in the family.
