Gold Rush


Join Us For the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days Show – August 16-18, 2019

Plans are well underway for the 46th annual Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days.  This FREE premiere antique show and market event is located along the banks of the Zumbro River in historic Oronoco, Minnesota (10 minutes North of Rochester and about 45 minutes South of Minneapolis-St. Paul on Hwy 52).   We welcome you to visit us and enjoy a great day of shopping, eating, listening to music and presentations, and catching up with friends. Hundreds of dealers from throughout the country fill over a thousand lots in this picturesque town of Oronoco.

Shoppers browse the antiques during the Downtown Gold Rush Days.

Local food vendors are available throughout, easily found by following the yummy aromas of fish-and-chips, popcorn, gyros, brats and much more. Plus the Oronoco VFW and the Fire Hall both provide breakfast and a full lunch/dinner assortment of choices.

Under the tall pine trees shoppers look for treasures.

This well-established show was identified in the July/August 2015 issue of Country Woman magazine as one of the top 6 antique shows to attend each year.  Watch a birds-eye view of the show and see how Oronoco fills with vendors and shoppers during this three day event.

Show hours:  Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Sunday, 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Visit goldrushmn.comfor additional information or contact Carol Olson, Event Coordinator at 507-367-2111; POB 266, Oronoco MN 55960; email: goldrush@bevcomm.net .
