Wagon Train and BBQ Rib Cook-Off - June 11

Merchants and visitors on Placerville's Historic Main Street anxiously await the arrival of the Highway 50 Association's Wagon Train each year. It is a proud tradition that celebrates our historic heritage in the heart of El Dorado County. Many business owners and employees dress up in western or pioneer attire and decorate their windows to tie in with the historic theme.

This year, the Placerville Downtown Association has many new or rekindled events planned in honor of the Wagon Train's arrival (the train will proceed through around 2 pm) on June 11th. The Main Street activities will run from 12pm to 6pm, and the street will be closed for the safety and enjoyment of the public.
