The town of Yreka, sitting in the beautiful Siskiyou County, is one of the best towns in California at preserving its history. That history will be on full display this week during the Yreka Gold Rush Days.
Yreka, California was a Gold Rush boomtown in the 1850’s, conveniently sitting along the Siskiyou Trail, which was a crucial trade line between California and the rest of the Pacific Northwest. On June 17th & 18th, 2022, the town will once again transform into a mecca of Gold Rush fever for anyone looking to experience the history of the region.
The event starts on the evening of June 17, which includes 23 stops for the “Gold Rush Nights” Sip and Shop downtown– including the Country concert in the Tri Counties Bank Parking Lot from 7pm-10pm. On June 18, a jam-packed schedule of events will hit the streets of downtown Yreka with modern country shows, gold panning, historic tours, and much more!
