Local Amador County Events
Amador County is a vibrant community that celebrates both its rich Gold Rush
history and its newly found traditions. There is always something going on
in the Sierra Foothills!
Out and About
Composed of several Gold Rush-era towns, Amador County has numerous annual
festivals that range from rubber-ducky races to Holiday Wine & Gift Open Houses.
Whatever the season, you will find something going on in Amador.

The Shenandoah Valley and surrounding areas of Amador County boast over 40
wineries featuring a wide variety of grapes and styles. Twice a year, the Amador
Vintner's Association puts on valley-wide events featuring live music, food pairings,
seminars, and of course, wine tasting. In March, Behind the Cellar Door celebrates
the new vintages with barrel samples and a chance to chat with the winemaker.
In October, as the crops come in, The Big Crush lets you become a part of the
harvest with event-only specials, special tastings, and even a grape stomp.
