Go Undercover at the Fair on Sunday

Watsonville, CA – What a wonderful sight, rain! Don’t let it dampen your plans—the Fair is operating as planned (including Carnival Rides at 3 pm) and there’s plenty to see and do indoors.

Duck inside the Harvest Building and check out the GIANT pumpkins. The orange gourds are unbelievably big. One winner weighs 482 pounds. And the pumpkins are not alone. There are lots of interesting items under the same roof, plus quilting and woodworking demonstrations

Babies Dash to Finish Line in Diaper Derby

Watsonville, CA -- The 2022 Diaper Derby is in the books! It was an intense race with nearly a dozen babies battling it out to be the fastest crawler at the Fair. There were lots of laughs (and a few tears) as the babies inched and scooted their way to the finish line- some taking breaks along the way. Family members and a packed audience cheered them on along the way.

But, in the end, only one baby can take home the blue ribbon.

Travel Back in Time at the Santa Cruz County Fair

Watsonville, CA – Would you like to visit Yesterday, today?

When you enter through the main gate, turn right and you’ll find yourself in Yesterday’s Farm. It’s a very special place created by the Agricultural History Project. Throughout the day, draft horses demonstrate how a single horse used to operate a hay baler. Also, local spinsters (yes, that’s what they’re called!) are actually spinning wool. It may seem like an out-of-date activity, but it’s still relevant today.
