  • By clicking the DONATE Button and making your donation to the challenge grant, we wil send you an I LOVE MY FAIRGROUNDS sticker to use on the window of your car, truck or home to show the community that you support our Fairgrounds.

The Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds Foundation kicked off 2020 being named Organization of the Year by the Pajaro Valley Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture. We presented our Famous Crab Feed in March. We were prepared when our Fairgrounds became the center for hundreds of evacuees and animals during the CZU Fire, and we ended our year celebrating the holidays with beautiful lights throughout the Fairgrounds.

All of these activities bring our community together to support each other and celebrate together. None of this would be possible without your support of the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds Foundation.

Help us match the $20,000 I LOVE MY FAIRGROUNDS Challenge Grant

With your donation we can double the grant amount to $40,000.

Donate Now with the Button below and we’ll send you your I LOVE MY FAIRGROUNDS sticker.
