PUBLIC MEETING ON THE STATE OF THE FAIR

Watsonville, CA – This past Wednesday evening, March 7, Santa Cruz County Fair Management Team leader Dave Kegebein welcomed 150 or so members of the community to the first “State of the Fairgrounds” meeting.

Retired fair manager John Kegebein began the evening with a quick Fairground history lesson and then Dave Kegebein took the assembled through current operations and the budget realities facing the fairgrounds. The meeting then moved on to planning for the future including:

  • Develop a five year business plan to achieve operational stability.
  • Undertake a master plan update to modernize the infrastrructure.
  • Create a strategic plan to create long tern financial stability.

The management team then offered the floor to those in the audience seeking public comment, suggestions, and offers of help. A follow up public meeting will be held in a few months to report on progress made to shore up the financial foundation of the Fairgrounds and annual Fair.

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.
