During the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days the City of Oronoco closes a portion of Minnesota Avenue to through traffic. This is where the excitement begins.
If you are coming from the south on Highway 52 and you want to arrive at the Oronoco Gold Rush Days by the information booth be sure to use the South Side Interchange coming north on Highway 52. You will head east and see the sign for the Old downtown of Oronoco and you head north on Minnesota Ave. Crossing the bridge that goes over the Zumbro River brings you directly into the event. There are volunteers directing traffic to follow a one way direction to the right. There are many areas to find parking and those who arrive early get the closest parking spots.
Coming From North:
For those coming from the North of Oronoco there is a 2nd exit for Oronoco above town. If you take that exit you can cross Highway 52 and go East on White Bridge Road. You can stay on White Bridge Road and turn right on 5th St. NE which will lead you to the North Entrance of the Oronoco Gold Rush Days. As you approach Minnesota Ave there are volunteers directing traffic again onto the one way path which allows you to find parking from the North side of town.
