New poster for the 2014 Mountain Mandarin Festival

The new gold in Placer County is growing on trees as the County has become known for their intensely flavored, sweet, Mandarins. The annual Mountain Mandarin Festival, November 21-23, 2014, will celebrate the new crop.

Placer County growers will sell thousands of pounds of fresh Mandarins and gift baskets, accompanied by all the free samples you like. Join in the fun with a Mandarin Recipe cooking contest, professional chef demonstrations, food, artisan crafts, and activities featuring the Mandarin, a “Peel & Eat” contest, live music and entertainment.

The Festival is held under the autumn-leaved trees of the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn, CA where their golds, rusts and burgundies are punctuated with the bright orange globes of Mandarins everywhere you turn.

The tangy scent of citrus is in the air as visitors discover chocolate-covered fresh Mandarins, Mandarin pizza, or pulled pork, and English Scones with Mandarin Curd. Visitors can take home Mandarin BBQ sauces, syrups, olive oils, dressings and dozens of other Mandarin inspired concoctions.
