Calaveras Now Has An "Official" Signature Event! 

Calaveras County now has an “Official” signature event. Tuesday morning the Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to pass a proclamation recognizing the Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee as the “Signature Event in Calaveras County.” The proclamation noted that the Fair generates hundreds of thousands of dollars for the youth of Calaveras County through the Junior Livestock Auction, Industrial Arts Auction and scholarship programs. Referencing the economic impact, the proclamation notes the Fair itself brings with it $7.7-Million in spending activity. Fair CEO Laurie Giannini was on hand to accept the proclamation. Calaveras County held its first fair in 1893 and the modern day frog jump dates back to 1928. This year’s fair runs May 17-20.
