#2 Friday night is Arizona’s favorite bluegrass band, The Sonoran Dogs. Food will be available for purchase and a no-host bar.

#3 On Saturday we’ll welcome Syd Masters & The Swing Riders from New Mexico. Dance, sing, laugh and enjoy a very entertaining show and a no-host bar.

#4 Also included in your ticket price is Saturday’s Chuckwagon dinner. Our theme for Saturday night’s dinner is “Denim & Pearls” and you are invited to wear your denim & pearls!

A “no-host” bar will be open for the evening activities – cash only. (Bringing your own cocktails to evening events is prohibited by the Fairgrounds liquor license.)

A portion of our proceeds will support the SCCFRA Foundation, Inc – a local non-profit focused on the preservation of the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. An amazing raffle has been created to support the foundation.
