“Amador City stands today among the liveliest and most go-ahead towns on the Pacific Coast. It is situated in a romantic spot on the Jackson and Drytown wagon road, two miles from Sutter Creek. Old landmarks in the shape of frame business houses have disappeared and substantial brick edifices arisen in their stead. At all hour of the day and far in to the night the camp wears a lively aspect” - Sacramento Daily Union, January 27, 1879.

Winter and early spring are great times to visit the Gold Country too. Occasional winter storms intermingled with bright blue skies, the hills are bright green and the poppies are out in profusion, no crowds or traffic… browse through the little shops, visit historical sites, check out all the wineries THEN comes summer and things heat up.
Amador City hosts a variety of special events including: In June - the Banjo Festival and all summer long “Saturday Night Dancin in the Street”; In August – the Tomato Festival, featuring all things tomato and general merriment; In September the downtown Wine Event; In October – folks stop in to see Dale’s exotic collection of costumes at his shop; in December – Calico Christmas, the town is decked in Cedar garlands with caroling and merchant open house.
