FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 6, 2014

Watsonville, CA – Within the past few days a Sacramento Appellate Court upheld a lower court ruling which, in 2012, had dismissed all challenges to the right of the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds to continue hosting rodeos.

At the time each point made by the plaintiffs, Citizens for Environmental Responsibility, citing pollution, noise, and the need to conduct a full environmental review of the rodeo, was negated in the earlier ruling.  The trial court had found no negative environmental damage or danger to the public as a result of a rodeo held in the fall of 2011.  The Appellate Court has now also affirmed that equestrian events such as the Stars of Justice Rodeo held that year fit within the historical uses of the Fairgrounds.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 25, 2014

Watsonville, CA – The Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds and their neighbors - represented by CAFA, the Community Alliance for Fairgrounds Accountability, have a reason to smile with the announcement that an agreement which reduces noise impacts generated by Ocean Speedway has been reached.

Fairgrounds manager David Kegebein explained “Over the last few years we have spent more than one year’s speedway rental income on legal fees.  We need to have and support a broad range of recreational and educational activities on the grounds however we can’t let one activity drive the Fairgrounds into financial ruin.  This agreement is welcome news for us all.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 27, 2013

Watsonville, CA – Hot on the boot heels of the very successful 2013 Santa Cruz County Fair the volunteer management team wasted no time starting the planning for 2014. First order of business, a theme.

Theme suggestions were solicited at the volunteer dinner held early October and from those suggestions the Fair department heads selected “Sew it  Grow it  Show it!”  This theme was crafted by Livestock Department Co Chair Dawn White.  The theme will inspire the often award winning poster art and be used by the various departments to build the displays that attract an increasing number of fairgoers each year.

The Santa Cruz County Fair celebrates the rich agricultural history of our community and people, and invests heavily in bringing this heritage to our youth.  The 2014 Fair will be held September 9-14 at the Fairgrounds located on Highway 152 just east of Watsonville.  Information on the Fair, and the Fairgrounds - a year round entertainment and event venue, can be found at www.santacruzcountyfair.com
