for kids only

In 2017, Go West has added several activities geared specifically towards kids.  Dress them up in Gold Rush era styles and bring the little ones downtown - they're sure to have a great day.

Here are some of the planned FREE activities:

  • Mountain Fitness brings old time fun that puts the 'active' in kids' activities. At the top of the Art Park, come and try:
    • Stick pony races

    • Gunny sack races, and

    • Barrel races.

  • On the stage at the Art Park, some activities your kids will enjoy:

    • Make and take a beaded old west bandana-type scarf.

    • Decorate a cowboy hat.

    • Kendra Palmer and Mariposa Rocks and will put on a rock painting / rock hiding / rock hunting fun and crafty event.  Your kids can decorate rocks and hide them, participate in the Facebook rock hunt, or do both!

  • Dummy roping returns this year at the bottom of 5th St, in front of Jazzercise.  Starting at 1, the little kids, age 4 - 6, will compete, followed after by 7 - 9 year olds.  Winners will win a Bob Berg belt buckle!

  • Kids' gold panning competition, 11 AM - 12 PM, Creek Walk.

  • Outside of Jazzercise, Ethos will bring some activities for kids.

Activities offered for a nominal charge:

  • Host of Heaven Stables will bring their traveling petting zoo, also in the

        Art Park, between 11 AM and 2 PM.

  • Let your kids release some of that energy by treating them to a jump in to Mariposa's own Dabbles Bounce House.

(Not) only for kids - these free activities kids will also enjoy:

  • Indian Hoop Dancer, 11 AM and 2:30 PM, Stroming Rd Lot.

  • 49er Gold Camp, all day, with special shows at 11 AM and 2 PM, Creek Walk.

  • Outhouse race, 10 AM, Stroming Rd.

  • Gunfighter shows, 12 PM, 3 PM, and 4 PM, Stroming Rd Lot. (Perhaps a little loud for the really little ones.)

  • For the little dancers and music lovers, music all day on the 5th St Stage.
