Opening Day at the Fair

Watsonville, CA – The 2017 Santa Cruz County Fair opens Wednesday at noon with 105 acres of annual favorites and some new surprises. There will be quilts, jams and jellies, giant pumpkins, award winning photographs and artwork, giant animals and a wide array of opportunities to buy the latest gadget for your home. And if you look no further than the Ball Park you’ll see two examples of what’s new.

Where the Frisbee Dogs amazed the last few years you’ll find adorable mini dogs tearing around a track twice daily. And right next door, also out in the Ball Park, The Drone Zone. Fair manager David Kegebein is always on the lookout for new experiences for guests to enjoy. Prospective pilots will first get to spend some time with the simulator to get a feel for piloting a drone and then out to the fight line to fly the real thing. The Drone Zone will be set up and active daily in the Ball Park.

One Out of Eight Has Never Seen a Cow

Come to the Fair, We Have Cows!

Watsonville, CA - According to a recently released survey of young adults in Britain 12 percent of young adults have never seen a cow. Fortuitously the Santa Cruz County Fair opens this Wednesday, September 13, to help ensure that this shocking statistic will hopefully never apply to the youth of Santa Cruz County.

“Fly Me to the Fair”

2017 Santa Cruz County Fair Selects Theme

Watsonville, CA – “Fly Me to the Fair” will be the foundation upon which the 2017 Santa Cruz County Fair is built.  Member of the Board of Directors Loretta Estrada suggested the theme. “I was looking for something a little different” explained Estrada.

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 2017 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 www.santacruzcountyfair.com
