Quincy, California, is located in the northwestern Sierra mountains. It began as a Gold Rush community in 1858. The downtown area offers quaint coffee shops, restaurants, bars and art galleries.

The closest major airport is Reno-Tahoe International, about 1.5 hours away followed by Sacramento and SFO. Bay Area residents should plan on a scenic, four to five hour drive.


Main Entrance:

Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds
204 Fairground Rd, Quincy, CA 95971


RV Entrance:

If you paid for hook ups, RV Entrance is located at the back of the fairgrounds off of Lee Road. Take Quincy Junction Road from Highway 70, turn right onto Lee Road. Look for first Grinduro flag on your right. Someone will be there to greet you.



Grinduro’s Art and Bike Show is basically a curated collection of our favorite, mostly-bike-related things. It’s two parts handmade bicycle display, one part art exhibit, one part independent craft fair and one part bike shop.

It includes some of the most interesting and elaborate works of art in cycling. We showcase the independent artisans and the iconoclasts who rarely get the spotlight at traditional trade shows and bike events. In addition to the bike exhibit, we’ll have work on display from some of our favorite artists, photographers and craftsmen.

We are proud to announce our 2018 Grinduro California builders and artists. Make sure you take some time to admire these amazing creators in the Pop Up Shop. Its going to be amazing. Also don’t miss a special Pop Up show by the Mattson 2 on Friday night 8pm.
