Watsonville, CA - There is nothing quite like Fairtime at a Fairgrounds. The Santa Cruz County Fair is no exception and you can feel the vibe as hundreds of volunteers work to be ready for opening day. "In the past we’ve been kind of low key about opening the gates” said Dave Kegebein, Fair Manager, who added, "This year we want to add a little more excitement to our ceremony."

Fair Board of Director member Stephanie Fontana volunteered to organize the festivities.  “Many of our colorful Fair performers will be at the main gate to entertain our early arriving guests prior to the start of the ceremony.  Then Ted Sanchez will sing the Star Spangled Banner, we’ll have a proper salute by an honor guard, and opening remarks by Don Dietrich, Board President” Fontana outlined.  The gates will then swing open at noon on the much anticipated fully packed five day Fair.

Watsonville, CA – Rocking with orange pigtails out, the kid’s pop-rock stage show “Twinkle Time” will debut at the 2015 Santa Cruz County Fair. And if there are children in the family, this is a must see show.

Starring Twinkle, sporting her signature bright orange pigtails, the show features her two best friends; Happy, a clumsy and shy bookworm who loves science, and Lil Hoopz, who is blissfully aloof and loves anything sports or competitive. The trio performs wearing wacky colored clothing and puts on a show that will get kids and parents jumping to their feet to dance and sing along.

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!”
