Board President Rob Marani noted that although the Fair struggled with many litigation issues and costs this past year, "Michael has done a commendable job in addressing and resolving the numerous legal challenges we were facing. I truly wish him well in his new endeavors."
The Fair Board of Directors has a previously scheduled a meeting set for next Tuesday, December 13, 2011, to address on going Fairground needs.
The Fairgrounds is home to the Santa Cruz County Fair which celebrates the rich agricultural history of our community and people, and invests heavily in bringing this heritage to our youth. The annual Fair is held the second week of September at the Fairgrounds located on Highway 152 just east of Watsonville.
