Wildwest steam punk festival


HangTown Wildwest & Steampunk Festival

Ever wanted to learn gold panning?  Join us at the Hangtown Wildwest and Steampunk Festival, and get instructions from World Gold Panning Championship competitors. Adults and children of all ages welcome.

This event will be held at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds, 100 Placerville Drive, Placerville, CA 95667, on Saturday May 21, 10am to 8pm, and Sunday May 22nd, 10am-6p

You get to keep the gold you find.  Bring your own pan if you have one (we have some loaners if you need one). Wear boots to wear in the panning tub, and a chair if you need one.

We look forward to helping you learn to pan for the gold!
