Come on out
to Silverado Canyon on October 10th-11th, 2015, 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 45th 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 45th ANNUAL SILVERADO COUNTRY FAIR and kickin' off Saturday mornin' October 10th at 9 am with the 45th annual Silverado Country Fair UnParade of "Canyon Karacters",
Juaneno natives, wagon driven-store robbin’ outlaws, horseback riders, scouts, dancers, a decorated golf cart brigade 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 Karacters", infamous
for robbing local stores and shooting varmints, along side one of Orange County's funniest and best dressed reenactment and gun slinging' groups who will be getting everyone in the
spirit of the Old Wild West!
Last year's Saturday music line up included 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 featured the legendary Oozie Blues, Americana music of Citizen Joe Band followed by the country rockin' blues of Lazy Brad Lewis!
Sunday's fair opened with the colorful Girl Scout Folklorico Dancers followed by bluegrass masters Shadybrook and Canyon Creek Ramblers. Sunday's event closed with a closing cigar box blues & dance party with The Budrows and GROOVESESSION from 3-6 pm...a kick ass fun time fer' all!
The Silverado Country Fair is
held annually 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. Come experience one of the last Wild West towns of the OC and invite your friends and family! You’re all welcome
to DRESS HILLBILLY WESTERN and bring
‘yer country attitude! “No
Hooch, No Pooch, No ATM”...meanin' no doggies nor spirits in the park and bring yer' gold with ya!
