Welcome to California Days Feb. 17 & 18, 2024

The Calico California Days event celebrates the historical timeline of the early settlements when California became the 31st state on Sept. 9, 1850. The event will coincide with National California Day that recognizes the Golden State every year on February 22. Calico Ghost Town will host this new event with educational displays about California’s history, games and contests for the entire family, live entertainment and more.

California Days is back February 17-18, 2024

San Bernardino County Regional Parks and Calico Ghost Town are excited to celebrate the second annual California Days event. California Days celebrates early California history with a focus on California’s admission to the union as the nation’s 31st state on Sept. 9, 1850.

This family-friendly event will precede National California Day, which lands on February 22 every year and will celebrate the people and culture of early California by hosting family activities, gunfight shows and educational displays on the state’s Bear Flag, Pony Express Trail, and Butterfield Overland Trail.

Serving as a natural backdrop to the Old West, Calico will travel back in time with a beard and mustache contest, arts & crafts, games and contests for all ages, pony rides, stories from the Pony Express, and a Pony Express relay for kids under 11.

Eventgoers can enjoy our fair food lineup with goodies such as pretzels, lemonade, and tater tot creations, or for very hungry appetites, the Calico Restaurant and Lil’s Saloon will be open.

Mining event sponsors include the Apollo Silver Corp., Cal Portland Company and Mitsubishi Cement Corporation, who will be on-hand to provide educational mining information and displays. Local food franchise Raising Canes Chicken Fingers from Barstow will also be on-hand to provide prize giveaways to eventgoers.

Calico will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Prices are $10 per adult, $5 children ages 4-11, and 3 years and under are FREE.

Calico Ghost Town offers full and partial camping at the park. Reservations may be booked directly online at www.sbcountyparks.com.
