Description of Copperopolis’ Homecoming Heritage Day Celebration:
California’s historic town of Copperopolis turned 150 years old in 2010. We continue celebrate our unique little town with an annual Homecoming Heritage Celebration and want to invite everyone who loves small town charm to join us. Copperopolis’ Homecoming was started by our founding families for an annual get together. Now everyone is welcome for a celebration fitting a town that saw Black Bart’s first and last stage coach robbery, hosted Mark Twain at a town social, had one of the country’s richest copper mines and a unique family owned Telephone Company (The Tower family). The Tower family will open the doors to their private museum with historical artifacts for all to enjoy. A traditional country style pancake breakfast will be the first event of the day held at the Armory. Vendors will be selling their wares in the Armory under a canopy of beautiful handmade quilts from the Copper Quilters as you are entertained by a unique professional ukulele orchestra. Our “Locally World Famous” Homecoming Heritage Parade will feature an array of colorful characters, gunfighters, saddle queens, citizens, politicians and animals all both tame and wild. Family fun, BBQ and Parade Awards will follow at Copper Fire Station 1 on Main Street (O’Byrnes Ferry Rd.) across from the Post Office.
