Trader’s Faire at Sutters Fort


Did you know that Sutter’s Fort was California’s very first mall?

Sutter’s Fort was indeed a type of mall. This is where all of the settlers (and Indians) came during trading days for manufactured goods, fancy cloth, and items that could not be produced on-site or back on the rancho. If you shopped at Sutter’s Fort, you would not just buy the goods, you would probably meet the artisans who made them: ironwork from the blacksmith, cloth from the weaving factory, barrels from the cooperage and flour from the grist mill.  Talented men and women made and sold their products at the busy market to locals as well as to the weary pioneers who arrived at the Fort after many months of travel.

Head over to Sutter’s Fort this weekend during their three-day demonstration with commerce from vendors. The demonstration runs Friday, April 16 through Sunday, April 18 from 10AM to. Admission on Friday is $6.00 per adult, $4.00 per youth (ages 6-17), and *FREE* for children 5 years and under. Admission on Saturday and Sunday is $7.00 per adult, $5.00 per youth, and *FREE* for children 5 years and under. Saturday and Sunday admission is a “Combo Ticket” which includes entrance for both the State Indian Museum and Sutter’s Fort.
