Coloma Gold Rush Live is back in 2023! Join us for this 4-day event and take a walk back in time. Explore our re-creation of an 1850 tent town and visit a mining camp, assay/claims office, gambling hall, general store, blacksmith, carpentry shop, laundry, bakery, and more!

At Coloma Gold Rush Live, visitors will be taken back in time to learn about incredible journeys, discoveries, and disappointments. You'll be able to register your claim at the Assay/Claims Office, procure supplies at the General Store, or find a place to bunk down and eat at the Boarding House. If you've just come in from the mines, head on over to the Barber/Bath House to clean up, then pick up a fresh shirt at the Laundry before heading over to the Saloon.

Coloma Gold Rush Live is made possible thanks to our partnership with the Gold Discovery Park Association. Parking and admission to the event is $15  per vehicle. For more information, call (530) 622-3470.
