The tradition of the Mother Lode Round-Up continues as a tribute to the Western heritage here in the Mother Lode. Now in its 60th year, the Mother Lode Round-Up is like a hometown reunion. It begins with the Cowgirl luncheon on April 9th. Then "saddle up" for a week-long experience of Cowboy and Small Town tradition that winds up with the Round-Up Parade and Rodeo on Mother's Day weekend. The Schedule below lists all the happenings.

Thanks to you, our fans, the merchants, our sponsors, members of the Posse, their wives, and our other supporters, this Great Mother Lode tradition continues.
