Outdoor Fairgrounds & Event Center

The Amador Fairgrounds & Events Center embraces its deep Old West roots with themed areas such as Frontier Town, Spur Emporium, and Pokerville Hall.  Most of the event will be outdoors and spread throughout the Fairgrounds in an authentic and rustic Gold Rush setting with picnic tables, grassy areas, and unpaved pathways.  – you may even hear (and smell!) a horse or a pig from the nearby livestock barns.  Please dress and wear appropriate footwear since we will be outdoors with limited shade covering and uneven surfaces.

Parking

Parking is complimentary for all guests. Please note that the parking lots are on grass lawn areas and unpaved dirt roads and are located a 5-10 minute walk to the main entrance. Please wear appropriate shoes. There are two parking lots available – Main and Overflow Parking lots. Premier Access Ticket holders and ADA accessible parking is located at the Main Parking Lot.

The Main Parking lot is located off Locust Street next to the Plymouth Elementary School at the front entrance of the Amador Fairgrounds. Guests should enter from Main Street in downtown Plymouth and turn south onto Locust Street. If the Main Parking lot is full, guests will be directed to the Overflow Parking Lot which is located at the adjacent Baseball field off Empire Street southeast of the fairgrounds.

What to Expect
