Watsonville, CA – The new all volunteer Santa Cruz County Fair Management Team is wasting no time getting to work. The first item on the agenda during their first meeting held last Monday, January 16, 2012 was an update on current financial conditions. The budget presented by team leader Dave Kegebein outlined a path to profitability as proper management oversight is instituted at the 105 acre event facility and Fairgrounds.
To date a dozen or so highly motivated community leaders have stepped forward to take on operational roles at the Fairgrounds on a volunteer basis. “We have committed to a year long plan to bring this wonderful community asset back to financial health” said Kegebein.
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 2012 Fair will be held September 11 - 16 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
