    Every year, on the weekend just before Thanksgiving, the Mountain Mandarin Festival unites crowds beneath the Gold Country Fairgrounds' autumn-leaved trees to celebrate fresh crops of mandarin oranges. Throughout the event, family-centered activities keep visitors of all ages entertained, including cooking contests, professional-chef demonstrations, and live musical performances. Also on hand, Placer County growers dole out thousands of pounds of fresh mandarin oranges, and more than 200 vendors showcase gifts ranging from lotions and candles to artist-crafted jewelry.

  • Adventure Connection
    The founders of Adventure Connection believe in magic. Not the trickery of the stage or spells cast by mysterious neighbors, but of the spiritual, environmental, and economic boons of the rivers they have spent their lives traversing. More than 25 years ago, a group of believers came together to share their love and passion for the rivers of California, building a company that combines whitewater rafting, wine tasting, and camping along the waterways they love. Over the course of the last two decades, the staff has guided boats of up to 18 people through the rapids of the American, Kaweah, and Tuolumne Rivers, coasting through mild ripples or white-knuckling class V rapids. Groups often leave the rafts behind to explore the scenic countryside and renowned wineries of the surrounding El Dorado region or to pitch tents and sleep under the stars.

  • Rise Up River Trips
    Rise Up River Trips has been making adventures possible for more than 30 years, offering rafting trips, fishing trips, and assorted wilderness excursions to travelers of all backgrounds. The American, Klamath, and Trinity Rivers host most of these getaways, which range in duration from a couple of hours to an all-day retreat. Some choose the adrenaline that accompanies a whitewater-rafting trip, while other choose the peace of a "music and rafting trip" or a relaxing session of riverside yoga. Whatever your speed, you can trust Rise Up to handle all the logistical details, including hooking you up with equipment rentals and paying tithes to the river gods.

  • River and Rock Adventures
    River and Rock Adventures' experienced guides help whitewater rafters traverse the three exciting and challenging forks of California?s American River. The Class-III south fork is ideal for first-timers testing the waters, and the Class-IV middle fork keeps intermediate paddlers on their tippiest of toes. Floaters on the popular lower south fork trip, also known as The Gorge, will journey through 14 miles of beautiful scenery and legendary rapids. After taking off from the base camp in Rivers Bend Resort at 11:30 a.m., rafts will pass through a relaxing stretch of Class II rapids as the Sierra foothills taper off to give the river a rocky hug. Photographers will be present to catch flashes of adventurous heroism and poorly timed nose picking while rafters swirl around in Class-III whitewater before the 2.5-hour tour comes to an end.
