Don’t miss the NEW and improved Ladies Night in Sutter Creek, Saturday April 14th from 3pm – 8pm, brought to you by the Sutter Creek Business & Professional Association.

It’s a great time … and it’s free!

Any time from 3pm on, you and your friends will meet at rHOmes at 40 Hanford St (corner of Gopher Flat and Main Street) and kick off your evening with a free glass of champaign before starting on your scavenger hunt. That’s right…a fun filled scavenger hunt throughout Sutter Creek.

Each participant will be given a Scavenger Hunt card and a rack card with a list of participating businesses and their specials for the evening. The Scavenger Hunt card will have 25 squares on it. Each square will have the name of a business for you to visit and find a certain item in their store. Once you find the item, the store will simply stamp that space on the card. When you get five stamps in a row, you will be entered into several giveaway drawings full of prizes from all the participating Sutter Creek Businesses. If you fill the whole card with all 25 stamps, you will be entered into the Grand Prize drawing!! You can turn your Scavenger Hunt card in at anytime at either EPCO Emporium at 6 Main Street or rHomes at 40 Hanford St, and then continue enjoying the evening. Winners will be contacted at a later date.

The Sutter Creek Business & Professional Association hopes that you will come to town, Saturday April 14th, and enjoy this special evening that was put together just for you!

SUTTER CREEK CALIFORNIA

“Although John Sutter’s sawmill was about forty miles away, Sutter Creek is in the heart of the California Gold Country. Sutter made camp here, trying to avoid the gold rush crowds, but miners soon spilled in and made the town. Mining boomed and then faded…making way for today’s contagion: wine fever. In and around Sutter Creek you can mosey along sidewalks shaded by filigreed balconies.”  – New York Times 36 Hours

Yesterday & Today

The town derives it’s name Sutter Creek after John Sutter. Sutter as early as 1844, had in pursuit of timber, established whipsawing pits and an outdoor manufacturing business named Pine Woods. It was this area near the creek, which runs behind City Hall, that became the site of new and permanent settlement. It is told the settlement started because of a single tent raised there for miners to use on rainy Sundays when they could not get to Jackson or Drytown. Sutter Creek truly established itself permanently when Gold quartz was discovered in 1851 and the became a major supply center.

Among other notable historic landmarks like Knight Foundry and the nearby Kennedy Mine, visitors should take some time to enjoy the historic wine country surrounding Sutter Creek. Wine production in the area dates back one hundred fifty years, when pioneers seeking their fortunes in gold found the ideal climate for growing wine grapes. Today Amador County boasts over 25 wineries and is famous for its red Zinfandels.
