Bring Your All to the Bounty of the County

Bring Your All to the Bounty of the County

September 01, 2021

Lace-up your shoes and get your appetite ready because it's time for the Santa Cruz County Fair! Bounty of the County will begin on September 15th and run through the 19th.

This is your chance to take your pick at the winner of the Wild West Turkey Stampede and the All Alaskan Racing Pigs while chowing down on fresh corn and funnel cake. This fair was first established in 1885 and became a true novelty event in 1941, and has been going ever since. 

The fairgrounds will be full of food, rides, and impressive agriculture. There is something comforting about joining your neighbors and cheering on the good guys on a warm fall day. You can purchase the tickets here or wait until you arrive — it is the perfect event for visitors of all ages. Grab the kids and make your way down to the Bounty of the County.
