July 1-5, 2021 – Murphys and Calaveras County are happy to welcome everybody back for a full weekend of celebrations.  While we won’t have any fireworks in the Murphys area this year, there will be plenty to do.  And you can always head up the hill for a drive along the beautiful Ebbetts Pass National Scenic Byway to beat the heat, get away from the crowds, do a little hiking, or find a spot to take a dip after enjoying some time in Murphys.
