So this happened last night!! I received an award from @gocalaveras for Most Innovative Retail Attraction in the Innovations in Tourism Awards for creating the @craftychicksroadshow and organizing the @angelscampfarmersmarket ! I couldn’t have done the CCRS without my hubby, Greg and all of his encouragement, support and hard work in helping me make this event what it is! Our very talented vendors are the best makers around and we thank the local community as well as our many out of town visitors for supporting them and us as we strive to grow and become better with each event! Our venue @calaverascountyfair is magnificent with providing us with a beautiful setting and a very accommodating staff which enables us to make the day enjoyable for all. Thank you, Laurie and crew! ❤️ Hope to see everyone at our Holiday Event on November 17th! #thankful #community #calaverascounty #angelscamp #lovewhereyoulive #bestvendorsaround #frogtown #craftychicksroadshow
Can’t miss this! Returning to historical, downtown Angels Camp! The inimitable, immersive, description-defying, high-camp and whimsical Mark Twain Wild West Fest promises to be a living interpretation and celebration of the 19th Century Wild West Gold Rush-era of the Sierra Nevada Mother Lode.
Featured are multiple areas of non-stop music, comedy and entertainment; roving street performers, musicians, honky-tonk piano players and dance hall girls; beer, wine and food; gun-slinging cowboys and outlaws and shoot-out reenactments, as well as villains and damsels in distress; gold miners, their encampment and gold panning demonstrations; and street vendors of all descriptions including arts and crafts (some Crafty Chicks Vendors) food, beer and wine. Interactive activities and contests will be available for kids too! Admission and parking are FREE all day.
In addition, historical impersonators and re-enactors from great literary figures, entertainers and iconic personalities who made the American West great will be in attendance, including Mark Twain himself. Make sure to take advantage of this great photo op! This year, the Mark Twain Wild West Fest is offering raffle tickets for $10 each with the grand prize of nuggets of gold or $3000 cash. 💰💰💰Raffle tickets may be purchased at the festival or ahead of time at:
