gold panning

An activity that defines our festival purpose, having fun while celebrating our Gold Rush heritage, Gold Panning competition will be back, on the Creek Walk, this year.

Competition times will be:

  • Kids, (6 – 15) 11 – 12

  • Amateurs, 12 – 1

  • Professionals, 1:30 – 2

For the gold panning enthusiast, we have a special treat this year.  This high quality sluice box, valued at $232, is available as a raffle item.  You can buy your raffle tickets, $2 apiece or 3 for $5:

  • At Yosemite Gifts, 5023 CA-140, before the festival.

  • At the Info Booth and Gold Panning on the day of the festival.

This is a great opportunity to score a modern and authentic item that our 49er miners would have loved to have!
