Placerville Local Events

I’m Ed Smith, a Placerville Car Accident Lawyer. If you live in Placerville or happen to be passing through late this summer and are looking for something to do, August is full of activities for all ages and tastes.


The 51st Annual National Mother Lode Art Exhibition

When: August 6 to August 20, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Where: Placerville Shakespeare Club 2940 Bedford Ave, Placerville, CA

Both local and non-local artists are invited to enter their works at this open art show. The contest will allow artists to submit paintings, photographs, drawings, and 3D art. Artists must ship their work by August 3 or bring it in person on August 4 and 5. The artwork will be displayed for visitors until August 20 when there will be an awards ceremony. The judge for the show will be Diana Coco Russel, who holds a degree in Illustration and a Master’s in Education from UCLA. Diana has worked as an animator for Warner Bros and Disney and now is a professor at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

Story of the Deep Blue Lead

When: June 9 to August 26

Where: El Dorado Arts Council 772 Pacific Street, Placerville, CA

Local photographer Caitlin Thompson teamed up with George Wheeldon, an emeritus professor of geology to discover and portray the fascinating features of the Deep Blue Lead channel. This dead river was home to many gold veins and helped shape the history of the area as it wound through granite slabs and past lava rock formations.

Hangtown Thursday Night Car Show

When: August 31, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Where: Historic Main Street, Placerville CA

Marvel at classic and historic cars as you walk down a closed off Historic Main Street in Placerville. Maybe you will spot a car you owned growing up or the one that you always wanted. Entries are limited to cars with the model year of 1975 or older. Awards will be given to entrants such as best of show, best paint, interior, motorcycle, and much more. There will be local food vendors there in case you get hungry and music to entertain everyone.

Summer in the Courtyard Concert Series

When: Saturdays, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Where: 312 Main Street, Placerville, CA

This August, enjoy two great concerts on the 5th and the 19th.  August 5, Placerville will welcome Alan Fuller and Keith Little to the stage to play americana and bluegrass music for the crowd. Then two weeks later on August 19, Keith Little will return with his band, The Keith Little Trio for more bluegrass music that will bring you back to your southern country roots.
