“Perfect Fair Grounds”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

We go to the County Fair each year and look forward to all the activities presented. Love the horse arena, the food!!, the exhibits, etc. Other times of the year they have stock car racing, quilt fair, Christmas boutique, Historical Society events, gorgeous flowers and much more.

“Lots of potential good times at an underutilized and underappreciated spot”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

Mostly known for its annual fair but the grounds host a dirt racetrack with a seasonal schedule for loyal fans and racers. Outdoor amphitheatre for small venue possibilities of music & entertainment. Seperate halls for displays or other activities. Little league ballpark. Horse arena and some on-site camper hook-ups. New Hall with restored antique bar just opened. All reasonably priced to enjoy.

Reviewed 12 September 2012

Our Santa Cruz Co Fair is by far the best and have been attending for over 30 years. Well organized and a special thanks to the volunteers to help make the Fair a success.

We try to go to at least one Fair every Summer. The Santa Cruz County Fair never dissapoints us. They have every type of exhibit and activity you would expect including great Fair Food.

Enjoyed walking around the many vendors shopping and eating tasty treats such as carmel apples covered in chocolate. We also enjoyed free exhibits and the pony ride.
