Gold Rush Live at Marshall Gold SP - living history event in El Dorado County

Gold Rush Live at Marshall Gold Discovery State Park

It wasn’t just gold seekers that headed to California for the Gold Rush. Hot on the heels of the first rush of gold seekers were merchants, gamblers, and saloon keepers who helped establish the town of Coloma. Join docents and staff at Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park as they recreate the town of Coloma in 1850. Visitors will be able to experience a fully-functioning town that includes an Assay Office, Doctor, General Delivery, Carpentry Shop, Blacksmith, Tinsmith, Justice of the Peace, Laundry, Saloon, Mining Camp, Bakery, and General Store, along with live music, children’s games, and gold panning!

  • Highway 49 between Placerville and Auburn.
  • $10 per vehicle day-use fee. No dogs will be allowed in the event except service dogs.
