Watsonville, CA – “It was a very good Fair” that comment from Santa Cruz County Fair manager Dave Kegebein summed up the 2014 edition of the county’s largest event. “Attendance was up nine percent and that’s on top of the eleven percent increase in 2013” he explained. Even more importantly, revenues outpaced attendance increases by a nice margin.

The healthy attendance numbers are also a nice reward for the volunteers who collectively spend thousands of hours making the Fair possible.  Kegebein was quick to give praise “Each year I am awed by the effort and dedication the volunteers give to their Fair.  It is very humbling to see how hard they work.”
