SILVERADO COUNTRY FAIR 
                & ART FESTIVAL


Come on out to Silverado Canyon on October 11th-12th, 2014, and experience how the last of the 'Simple Folk' join hands for a jamboree! Just miles from the inner city life of Orange County, lies the little ‘ole town of Silverado Canyon. This country town of less than 1,500 residents was once inhabited by the Juaneno Native American tribe then later part of the 1800’s silver boom! The 44th Annual Silverado Country Fair promises to be one of the best family events of the season and will explore the wonders of the area’s Old West rustic culture, great live music, tasty food, handmade arts and crafts, 1800's activities, plus some silly ‘ole timey’ contests, all nestled under the Oak trees below Orange County’s famous Saddleback Mountain.

This year is the 44th ANNUAL SILVERADO COUNTRY FAIR and kickin' off Saturday mornin' October 11th at 9 am with the 44th annual Silverado Country Fair “UnParade” of canyon characters, Juaneno natives, wagon driven-store robbin’ outlaws, horseback riders, scouts, dancers and classic cars. You can best view the live 'kiss kiss bang bang' action from the Silverado Café or the Canyon Market! The Country Fair event at the park opens at 10:00 am with live performances of music, dancing and gun ‘slingin’ fun, local art & craft merchants, 1800’s hands-on activities and eatin' contests, petting zoo & children's games plus the 'by golly tastiest and wholesomest country cookin’ ya ever ate' Saturday to Sunday. 

"First we hang'em then we have a trial" is the canyon vigilante way of justice at the Silverado Jail! Fer' only $5 to charity, you can lock up yer' friends fer' doin' absolutely nuthin and frame 'em with a 'real live' WANTED poster or bail receipt! 

Highlighting the entire event will be the Silverado Characters, infamous for “robbing” local stores and shooting varmints, along side one of Orange County's funniest and best dressed reenactment and gun slinging' groups Spurs n' Satinwho will be getting everyone in the spirit of the Old Wild West!  

Saturday's music line up includes The Juaneno Tribal Singers, folk favorites of Valerie Bloom and Miguelito Pulido (yup...the mayor's kid!) and cowboy singer Rusty Richards remaining member of the "Sons of the Pioneers!" The Saturday Night Music Fest from 4-9 pm will feature the legendary Oozie Blues, Americana music of Citizen Joe Band followed by the country rockin' blues of Lazy Brad Lewis! 

Sunday's fair opens with the colorful Girl Scout Folklorico Dancers followed by bluegrass masters Shadybrook and Canyon Creek Ramblers. Sunday's event closes with a closing cigar box blues & dance party with The Budrows and GROOVESESSION from 3-6 pm you won't wanna' miss!

The Silverado Country Fair is held at the Silverado Community Center & Fairgrounds, located just one mile into Silverado Canyon, and only minutes away from the cities of Orange, Lake Forest, Santa Margarita and Irvine.
