ORONOCO – Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days’ hat is sporting another feather, and this plume is international. TheCulture Trip.com, a website that covers the best of art, food, culture and travel around the world (even Antarctica), has named Gold Rush one of “Minnesota’s 10 Unmiss-able Events and Festivals in Summer 2014.”
CultureTrip, which claims 450,000 website visitors per month and another 150,000 to its Facebook page, says Oronoco’s “tiny population of 800 swells during the festival to accommodate more than 50,000 antique buffs looking for bargains. Visitors will find everything from 18th century muskets and farm wagons to glassware and embroidery.”
Four years ago, Country Living Magazine gave kudos to Gold Rush as a Top 12 Midwestern Antique Show.
