Thank You to Our Platinum Sponsors
One of the biggest annual events in Tuolumne County is still 100% organized and run on the day by local volunteers...business owners, chamber board members, local non-profits and clubs who support our community in so many ways, and friends who like to lend a hand and love a good day out with neighbors and friends. Please be kind and courteous to our many volunteers, and thank them for the hours they dedicate to making the 49er Festival BETTER THAN EVER!
Thank You to our 2022 Volunteers!
These local folks and organizations dedicate hundreds of hours to make the 49er Festival a memorable experience. Please be sure to thank them for supporting our most popular annual event.
