Take a journey into the past! Every Fall, Sutter Creek comes alive with a most unusual and entertaining event, The Musical Organ Rally.
Started in 2006, the Musical Organ Rally brings musical organs for all over, to Historic Sutter Creek's Main Street. Come see and hear these beautiful, wonderful, and RARE machines from an era gone by.
Have you ever heard the music that comes from a real organ in an Authentic Carousel? Or have you ever heard a Street Organ Grinder...the kind who in days gone by had a monkey that would work the croud for a tip? Have you ever actually seen, up close, how one of the magnificent machines works? This is your chance to experience something very unique.
Some of the organs you will see on the streets of Sutter Creek are Dutch Street Organs, Fairground Organs, hand built organs and more. All are privately owned, ranging from very old to present day manufacture. The owners of these wonderful machines come from all over the country to let you experience their music and beauty.
