After you have enjoyed the car show, consider simply strolling down the historic streets of Downtown Jackson. You will be sure to find antique shops, art, classic books, saloon style restaurants and unique shops. Jackson, CA was founded over 150 years ago during the gold rush! In its early years, the town was located near a mine, so in true western fashion, minors would make their way to the town of Jackson Creek for “gambling, girls, and gastronomic delights”! There is also a historic Jackson walking tour that you can partake in to learn all about this great city – Jackson, the Friendliest Town in the Gold Country!
The Jackson Business and Community Association, which is dedicated to promoting the interests of Jackson’s unique economy, hosts the Motherlode Cruise Car Show annually. Ran by citizens who have local businesses, they strive to form collaborations and good relationships between the “business community, residential community, local government, and the people [they] serve”.
