We Have a Winner!

Watsonville, CA – The Santa Cruz County Fair is excited to announce the theme of the 2023 Fair and the winner of the Fair Theme Contest.

The Fair theme is “Home Grown and Locally Shown!

The theme beautifully captures the spirit of the Fair and the agricultural roots of the community.

The winning theme comes from Kathryn Doman of Watsonville. Not only is Kathryn a fan of the Fair, but she’s also a neighbor.

“I live right next door to the fairgrounds in the house that I grew up in. It's truly a joy to be neighbors with the fairgrounds. The love for this area lives deep within my heart. Thank you for considering my suggestion,” says Kathryn.

For submitting the winning theme, Kathryn receives a Fair VIP Family Pack. It includes a parking pass, four admissions, and carnival wristbands.

Thank you, Kathryn! We look forward to seeing you and your family at the Fair, September 13-17, where everything is Home Grown and Locally Shown!

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 2023 Fair will be held September 13-17, 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
