In order to keep Mule Days running smoothly and for the enjoyment of all, we ask that you please understand and follow these guidelines.


Dogs are not permitted on State Fairgrounds (service animals are an exception). If you are camping, dogs may not enter the gates onto the grounds, but must be kept in your campsite only. You may not allow your dogs to run free or roam. Dogs must be in a kennel or on a leash in your campsite and may not pose a threat to other campers or livestock near you. You must have control of your animal at all times. Bishop has a dog park with large and small dog sections located behind and adjacent to the City Park.


Mule Days Celebration prohibits the use of any motorcycle, ATV, golf cart, bicycle, scooter, skateboard or roller blades on the Tri-County Fairgrounds due to insurance requirements. The only motorized vehicle that will be allowed is conveyance for a handicapped person operated at walking speed.

Speed Limit

All vehicles must obey the 3 MPH speed limit on the fairgrounds.


Campfires are not permitted in the RV/camping area because fire hazard in our area is always very high in May.


Generators may run daily from 6 AM to 10 PM only. Please respect your neighbors.

Quiet Time

Quiet time is between 10 PM and 6 AM daily. This includes running of generators, music and parties.

Please Do Not Pet the Animals

Mule Days Celebration encourages our guests to experience the wonderful mules and donkeys stabled in the barns and stalls area. However, due to the California State and Mule Days Celebration bio-security protocols we cannot and do not encourage our guests to pet or feed the mules and donkeys.
