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.”

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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 17, 2013

Watsonville, CA – “What a great Fair!”  And it wasn’t just the hundreds of volunteers who made the 2013 Santa Cruz County Fair possible who were saying it.  Facebook posts, tweets, email messages, comments to the Fair’s survey team, even bits of conversation caught out on the grounds all could be distilled into one visitor’s comment “What a great Fair, the best one ever!”

The numbers confirm that it was also one of the most popular Fairs ever.  “We don’t have attendance figures quite yet, still counting” said Fair manager Dave Kegebein who added, “But we do know that revenue was up over 11 percent and our group of vendors did even better than that showing more than a 20 percent increase over last year.”
