“2020 Santa Cruz County Fair Remains Hopeful”

Watsonville, CA – Santa Cruz County Fair Manager David Kegebein observes that a report on the demise of the 2020 Fair is premature. “We would love to hold a Fair this September and, as of now, still plan to do so. But we are also realistic and waiting for guidance from county and state officials. I expect a final decision will come in early summer.”

“Cool Shades and Tractor Parades” is the theme for this year’s Fair and most departments have already met to begin planning.

The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.

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 2020 Fair is planned for September 16-20 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
