Can you expect the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds to be there for the next Fair or your next special event? Or even a safe haven during the next disaster?

The Fairgrounds Foundation is the 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to ensuring a vibrant, healthy Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. Established in 2002, it has provided more than $2,000,000 to Fairgrounds projects.

The Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds is a unique venue for recreation, education, science, sports and charitable activities that enrich our community. Used by schools, companies, community groups, families and individuals year-round, the Fairgrounds also plays an important role as an evacuation center for people and animals in the event of a disaster, such as fire, earthquake and flooding.
