Gold County Fairgrounds, 209 Fairgate Road, Auburn, CA 95603
The new gold in Placer County California is growing on trees as the County has become known for their intensely flavored, sweet, Mandarin Oranges. The annual Mountain Mandarin Festival with the new crop of delicious, foothills-grown Mandarin oranges. Placer County growers will sell thousands of pounds of fresh Mandarin oranges and gift baskets, accompanied by all the free samples you like. Join in the fun with a Mandarin Recipe cooking contest, professional chef demonstrations, food, artisan crafts, and activities featuring the Mandarin orange, a Peel & Eat contest, live music and entertainment.
The Festival is held under the autumn-leaved trees of the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn, CA where their golds, rusts and burgundies are punctuated with the bright orange globes of Mandarins everywhere you turn. The tangy scent of citrus is in the air as visitors discover chocolate-covered fresh Mandarins, Mandarin pizza, or pulled pork, and English Scones with Mandarin Curd. Visitors can take home Mandarin BBQ sauces, syrups, olive oils, dressings and dozens of other Mandarin inspired concoctions.
