Santa Cruz County Fair
Long Business Description

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 Fair is always held in  September 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

The 2023 Santa Cruz County Fair will be held September 13-17.

The Santa Cruz County Fair's theme of the 2023 Fair is “Home Grown and Locally Shown!” The theme beautifully captures the spirit of the Fair and the agricultural roots of the community.

The winning theme comes from Kathryn Doman of Watsonville. Not only is Kathryn a fan of the Fair, but she’s also a neighbor.
