Mother Lode Round-Up Parade

Sponsored by:

The world-famous Mother Lode Round-Up Parade kicks off in Downtown Sonora at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 13th, and will feature over 100 parade entries marching, trotting and rolling down the entire length of Washington Street. As usual, thousands of spectators can be expected, lining the street to watch and cheer. The parade draws over 20,000 visitors and spectators and has become one of “the events to see” in California. The Parade grew to 5 Sections of over 200 entries before the pandemic.

Remember, the Parade begins at 10 AM on Saturday, May 13th and there will be a crowd so get there early to find a place to park and to stake your claim on place watch along Washington Street. Watch live on our webcam here.
