The Earthquake Street Festival is sponsored by the Winters Chamber of Commerce, and is free of charge. The Earthquake Street Festival got its start in April 1992 as a centennial celebration of the rebuilding of the downtown following a devastating earthquake in April 1892. Winters residents John Pickerel, owner of The Buckhorn, and Charley Wallace, publisher of the Winters Express, founded the festival, which was later taken over by the Chamber of Commerce and moved to August so it wouldn’t compete for funds and volunteers with Youth Day.
