Weaverville’s 2nd Annual Frontier Days Celebration - May 11, 2019

“Find Trinity Gold on Frontier Days – Touching History”

Roll back time to the 1850s!

Join in the festivities, May 11, 2019, 10am-4pm.

Our old fashioned celebration of heritage and culture begins at the Highland Art Center with the Nor-Rel-Muk Wintu Nation ceremony and introduction to village life. Time period crafts, activities, and demonstrations for all ages and interests throughout its Victorian gardens and grounds.

From there, the tinkering of blacksmiths forging metal works will lead you down the lane to the Jake Jackson Museum where gold panning and other outdoor exhibits await public and prospectors alike.

Neighboring the museum is the oldest continuously used Chinese temple in California, Weaverville Joss House State Historic Park. Explore the temple’s intricate architecture and design, while being introduced to Taoism and the fascinating role the Chinese played in early settlement history.

Head west and up the hill, to the Young Family Ranch for an opportunity to learn about early agriculture, animals, witness water witching.

Afterward, enjoy a historic tour of the cemetery grounds while searching for notable pioneers. Do a tombstone rubbing.

Enjoy music, visit merchants, and spread merriment all day. Our day’s events will close with a grand performance by the Community Band at the Band Stand at 3pm!

And if this isn’t enough to get you excited about our 2nd Frontier Days Celebration, mine the town for hidden golden nuggets throughout the venues! Redeem your prizes, and take a piece of Weaverville home with you.

Come one, come all! And join us as we spend the day touching history.
