Due to COVID-19, we regret Preston Castle remains closed due to Amador County restrictions for museums in the Purple Tier.

When the county moves to the Red Tier we will be able to re-open for some activities. Check the Amador County Covid-19 status here.

Discover Preston Castle

Our 2021 Events Schedule is Announced

It is with enthusiastic optimism and excitement that we announce a schedule of events at the castle for 2021. All events listed are contingent upon Amador County, CA’s Covid 19 status, guidelines, and restrictions. 

Throughout the year, Preston Castle presents a variety of events allowing visitors to experience the Castle in uniquely enchanting ways.

From our first event of 2021, our 1st annual Spring Crafts Fair to Christmas at the Castle, from Living History Tour Day to our renown Preston Castle Haunt, our goal for 2021 is to provide as many safe opportunities for you to discover Preston Castle.

As a non-profit organization, the Preston Castle Foundation produces these events in order to raise the funds necessary to maintain and ultimately restore our beloved castle to its original state.

The upcoming schedule of events is listed below. Click on each to learn more and to purchase tickets. We appreciate your patronage.
