Highway 49--Gold Rush Country
Held in this scenic mountain town, this festive event is scheduled this year for October 10. The Downieville Lions Club makes sure that there are plenty of delicious brats and homemade sauerkraut, plus beers fresh from Munich and fresh apple cider prepared on the spot. Live music entertains a happy audience seated on hay bales under tall shade trees, and vendor booths line the main street—providing just enough to do.
