Calaveras Jumping Frogs Celebrate Their 90th Birthday This Year! 

Calaveras County’s celebrated Jumping Frogs celebrate their 90th Birthday this year and will soon launch their annual Goodwill Tour which builds excitement for the Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee. This year’s event is May 17-20 at Frogtown in Angels Camp. Every year the Frog’s promote the Frog Jump in advance by appearing around Calaveras County—and beyond. This year’s tour concludes on May 16th at noon with the Annual State Capital Frog Jump in Sacramento. This 90th Birthday year means more excitement than ever as the frogs and their entourage of frog jump committee members/handlers hit the road. The first frog jump was staged in Angels Camp in 1928 to celebrate the paving of Main Street and the event has grown to international prominence over the past 90 years. This year is also the 32nd anniversary on the Frog Jump World’s record set by Rosie the Ribiter in 1986 with an unprecedented jump of 21 feet, five and ¾ inches.
