2015 Santa Cruz County Fair Selects Theme

Watsonville, CA – “Country Nights and Carnival Lights” will be the foundation upon which the 2015 Santa Cruz County Fair is built. From a list of more than a hundred suggestions submitted by the community, ten finalists were selected and during the year’s first fair department head meeting the winning theme was chosen.

The wining theme was submitted by the Azevedo Family of Corralitos and Katie Azevedo, on behalf of the family, said “I grew up at the Santa Cruz County Fair as the youngest of six kids.  My family was involved in 4-H and we always had livestock at the fair. We also took pride in entering baked goods and crafts in home arts.  For me, the fair has always been a time to have fun and see friends.”  Their family involvement now extends to the next generation; “My kids, Haley, AJ and Carly, are now involved in 4-H and we thought it would be fun to add to our family’s fair traditions by brainstorming theme ideas” Azevedo explained.  She added, “We are very excited to have been chosen and hope to see you at the Fair!”

One Less Day, a Lot More Fair

Watsonville, CA – The Santa Cruz County Fair Board of Directors has voted to shave one day off the annual Fair and use the savings to fill the now five day Fair with more and bigger entertainment and attractions. “It’s hard for folks to get to the Fairgrounds during the week and that’s been reflected in the attendance on Tuesday especially” explained Dave Kegebein, Fair Manager.

The Santa Cruz County Far has been enjoying a renaissance the past few years and part of the increasing success is Kegebein’s philosophy of remaking the Fair in part each year. In keeping with that goal Kegebein proposed, and the board agreed, it is better to have five very full attraction rich Fair days.
