The 2019 Mother Lode Fair is set to open Thursday July 4 and end Sunday July 7
In addition to the many year-round recreational activities the central Sierras have to offer, there are a large number of planned events throughout the year. These include fairs, concerts, arts and crafts, wine and food, contests, exhibits and so much more. Many of the events occur annually, some only during a specific season, some repeat each week or month or other interval. Some happen just once.
Regardless, it may be difficult to be aware of the variety of events within a given timeframe. I hope to consolidate many of the more popular events and return often to update the calendar.
The list will not be limited to Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties. Essentially anything within half a day's drive of Highway 108 will be considered. Events in Oakdale, Modesto, Bridgeport, Lee Vining, etc., are reachable and worth including. Feel free to comment with activities that may be worthy of the calendar.
You will find a list of recurring events as well as links to other events calendars at the bottom of this article.
