Spring Fair, held at the Santa Cruz County Fair Grounds on April 28, 10:00am-3:00pm is a great family destination. Smaller and more intimate than the county fair held in September, this fair offers many of the same attractions. Enjoy the horse show, poultry show, rabbit show, and petting farm. Watch the fashion review, where youth are challenged to put together outfits given certain constraints, and show them off with poise. Enjoy the animal dress up contest. Only 4-H project animals can be entered in the live animal category, but all are welcome to enter the stuffed animal dress up contest. See a variety of items exhibited that have been made by local youth. Bid on delicious treats at the dessert auction with winners every half hour throughout the afternoon. There will be fun, low-cost carnival games, and a $6 barbeque lunch available.
At 11:00am Gail Harlamoff will be giving a demonstration on dog training tips and techniques and showing off her bull terrier’s skills. At 2:00pm we hope to have a fire truck for youth to explore and ask questions of firefighters. Complete a Scavenger Hunt form and turn it in before you leave and you will be entered in a drawing to win a Jamba Juice gift card worth $5. There will be 4 winners chosen!
Entry to the Spring Fair is FREE. And all activities are priced only to cover the costs of the activity and prizes. This is a non-profit event put on to benefit the families of Santa Cruz County. Come to the fair grounds at 2601 East Lake Avenue, Watsonville and continue past the main entrance to the Horse Show Entrance where you will be directed to parking and the fair entrance.
The Spring Fair is brought to you by the youth of the Santa Cruz County 4-H. 4-H is a youth development organization run entirely by volunteers. It offers children the opportunity to learn a wide variety of skills and hobbies like scrap booking, knitting, welding, robotics, cooking, tanning, engineering, quilting, gardening, and animal care, just to name a few. It is designed to develop self confidence and an interest in citizenship and leadership.
