From County Fairs to Harvest Celebrations, Auburn’s local life comes alive through legendary festivals throughout the year and everyone’s invited. In a world where experiences can be transplanted from one destination to another, Auburn has held on to its sense of place and, more importantly, its sense of identity. Twice a month Auburn hosts a classic cruise nite and the streets rumble with old school cars. You’ll discover everything from the thrills of a demolition derby to the exceptional musicians of Placer County’s renowned symphony.
“The greatness of a culture can be found in its festivals.” — Siddharth Katragadda
