36th Annual Portola Railroad Days!
Portola Railroad Days was started in 1983 by interested merchants and citizens of the Portola Community, along with the support of the City of Portola and the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce.
Portola Railroad Days is an annual community festival celebrating Portola's rich history as a railroad town and is held at Portola City Park in August each year. Please check out the website for dates.
Portola has been a railroad town since early 1910 when the first passenger train rolled in with some of the families of the railroaders.
The Western Pacific Railroad was a very active railroad until its merger with Union Pacific Railroad in 1982.
The Friends of Portola Railroad Days, with the support of the City of Portola, Graeagle Lions Club, the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce, and the Western Pacific Railroad Museum have included activities that has helped bring some of the railroad past to life.
Every year the Committee plans activities for the Railroad Days, including the Golden Spike Parade .
The Friends of Portola Railroad Days selects a Grand Marshall for the parade from citizens who have supported the community.
