Must see · Historic Walking Area · Neighborhood
Historic Old Town Auburn is a small, quaint town still reminiscent of the 49er gold rush era when it was established. Old Town is located in just about 2 square blocks, at the base of the historic Placer County Courthouse, right at the northbound Maple offramp of the I-80. Or the Nevada St offramp from the southbound I-80.

So make a day of it. Bring the family. Shop, visit our museums, have breakfast or lunch, and enjoy quaint Old Town Auburn. We have special events all year 'round, starting with an every-Saturday-morning Foothill Farmer's Market featuring Placer Grown fruits and vegetables. Spring and fall antique street fairs, Cinco de Mayo celebration, a Spring art and wine faire, a summertime Luau, a fall food/wine festival, classic car shows, Movies Under the Starts, and two Country Christmas evenings which highlight the calendar.
