This year is the 43rd ANNUAL SILVERADO COUNTRY FAIR and it kicks off October 13th at 9 am with an annual Silverado Country Fair “Unparade” of canyon characters,
wagon driven-store robbin’ outlaws, horseback riders, scouts, dancers and
classic cars. You can best view the live 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 such as gold panning and eatin' contests, petting zoo & children's games plus the “by golly tastiest and wholesomest
country cookin’ ya ever ate” both
Saturday and Sunday. Highlighting the event will be
the Silverado Characters, infamous
for “robbing” local stores and shooting varmints, along side Spurs n' Satin, one of Orange County's funniest and best dressed re-enactment groups who will be getting everyone in the
spirit of the “Wild West!”
Country Fair wild west town visitors will be treated to a special Saturday performance by the legendary cowboy Rusty Richards, the last of the singin' cowboys from the Sons of the Pioneers. Rusty will be followed by the Canyon Creek Ramblers and would'ya believe it?...a watermelon and pie eatin' contest too! Sat & Sun stage line-up also includes new young singer/ songwriters: Nicole Vaughn, voted OC Music Awards "Best OC Folk Band", 13 year old folk and mariachi singer Maya Burns, and the canyon's own Valerie Bloom! The Saturday Night BLUES Fest will rock the canyons with live Blues from 5-9 pm with special guest performances by Three Blind Mice, The Oozie Blues, closing with a hillbilly hoedown by Sawtooth! Come Sunday morning at 10 am for the Silverado Gymnasts and experience the colorful and talented Girl Scouts Folklorico dancers, followed by Shadybrook Bluegrass, Norm & Robin Sancho, the Jeff Wilson Band, and closing with a GROOVE SESSION dance party you don't want to miss!
