The Fairgrounds Foundation has been working with the Santa Cruz County Fair Livestock Department to create a magnificent Fair for you this year.


Support the Junior Livestock Department

Donate an Award or Place an Auction Advertisement.

Awards: The 4-H, FFA, Grange, and independent exhibitors bring their livestock to the Santa Cruz County Fair to compete in breeding, market, and showmanship classes. Awards are presented to the exhibitors demonstrating the best in animal husbandry and showmanship.

Auction Advertisement: Support the Jr. Livestock Auction by placing an ad in the Auction Buyers’ Guide.  The Jr. Livestock Auction has an average of 170 animals sold each year.  Monies donated to the Auction are used for advertising, promotions, and the Livestock Buyers’ Fund (this fund bumps the price of animals sold below the auction average and/or to purchase animals with no buyer).
