& FOLK FESTIVAL

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 native tribe, wagon driven-store robbin’ outlaws, horseback riders, scouts, dancers, followed by classic cars and a decorated golf cart brigade. 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!  

This year's Saturday music line up may include The Juaneno Tribal Singers and cowboy singer Rusty Richards remaining member of the "Sons of the Pioneers!" The Saturday Night Music Fest from 5-10 pm will rock the saloon doors with the country rockin' blues of Lazy Brad Lewis followed by an after dark Steampunky techno dance party put together by our own Rachael Starr Maloof! 

Sunday's fair opens with the colorful Girl Scout Folklorico Dancers followed by local bluegrass and country music masters. The 2015 Country fair ends with a big bang cigar box blues & dance party with The Budrows and a band TBA...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!
