More Info

"A picnic ... a tradition ... and tons of fun since 1895!" Early Miners picnics raised funds for miners' widows and orphans. Today it's a chance to celebrate our gold mining past - with Living History docents in vintage costumes, as they portray the colorful characters who made Empire Mine a resounding success. Bring your lunch, blankets and chairs, and picnic in the shady gardens - or purchase food, drinks and treats from popular local vendors, including Cornish pasties (a favorite miners' meal) and plenty of ice cream. Enjoy non-stop fun with live music and entertainment, children's activities, an old-fashionied cake walk and a silent auction. Be sure and catch the dramatic mine-rescue reenactment in the mine yard at high noon. Cheer the old-time rescue vehicles on as they rush to save the injured miners. Hosted by Empire Mine Park Association (EMPA) to help maintain and improve our treasured Park, it's an action-packed day for all ages - and everyone's invited (including well-behaved dogs on leashes). For further details, phone the Visitor Center on (530) 273-8522 or visit
$7 ages 17 & over, $3 ages 6-16, FREE admission for children under 6 + FREE parking
