El Dorado County Gold Week is a special county-wide week of events and activities scheduled around the 2016 World Gold Panning Championships. Festivals, concerts, rare access to hidden historical areas, special entertainment and more will occur, integrated with the gold panning competition schedule. The historical associations, businesses and downtown associations have developed their individual schedules, so continue to check back here to the website often, as the Calendars (these events and activities at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds and Communities) are being continually updated!
Besides Gold Week, everyday fun in El Dorado County includes whitewater rafting, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, swimming, picnicking, gold panning, fishing and camping, so there is plenty to do.
Various El Dorado County communities have prepared unique opportunities to visit them and learn about what makes them special. So definitely consider taking advantage of what is being offered. The welcome mat is out. El Dorado County is ready!
