2017 County Fair Shows More-Than-Fair Increase in Attendance – NoozHawk the freshest news in Santa Barbara

The 2017 Santa Barbara County Fair is a wrap and fair officials are reporting that a combination of special attractions, carnival rides, the concert lineup and great weather contributed to a 6.6 per cent increase in event attendance over 2016.

There were 9,854 more visits to the fair this year, adding up to a grand total of 158,652 visits.

Along with greater attendance, carnival ridership during the five-day run went up 9 percent, while food-and-beverage sales showed significant growth as well, with preliminary numbers indicating an increase of about 6 percent.

Junior livestock auction sales information is not yet available.

“We’re thrilled with the results of the 2017 Fair," said Richard Persons, Santa Maria Fairpark CEO. "It indicates the community appreciates what a great value the fair is, with strong entertainment, great food, fun rides, lots of animals, and great weather.

"The strong showing at the gate tells us that we put together the right combination of promotions and attractions to interest people, even with two large wildfires to compete with,” he said.

Ticket promotions for the 2017 fair included discounts of 20-40 percent on single-day admission and season tickets purchased in advance, along with an all-day ride wristband sold in advance for a 28 percent discount.

Promotional days during the event included a $1 admission on Thursday for those age 62 and older, and a free admission on Saturday for active duty members of the armed forces.

Attractions for 2017 included four nights of main stream musical and comedy acts presented in the Bud Light Concert Series on the KCOY main Stage, with .38 Special, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, John Michael Montgomery and Leann Rimes all appearing.

Fair officials consider the Iglesias show to be the largest crowd ever drawn to a main-stage act at the Santa Barbara County Fair, with a crowd estimated at 8,500 people.

To accommodate the large numbers, a video wall was placed on the Sun Center Stage so people arriving late could still see the show from a good vantage point.

Persons said, “We added chairs for this show, and had about $10,000 in additional expenses for the night with the chairs and the video wall, but it was worth it so that our community could see one of the hottest acts in the world right now for just the price of an admission ticket.”

Other attractions on the Sun Center Stage included Central Coast crowd favorites Steppin’ Out, Burning James and the Funky Flames, and Ricky Montijo and the Mojitos.

The fair presented full exhibit halls including nearly 5,000 competitive exhibits with blue-ribbon winners in many hundreds of categories, and about 2,000 head of livestock.

The Rabobank Discovery Pavilion featured Bug-Ology, an interactive educational exhibit all about insects in the Armory Building, while the Ag Pavilion moved to the Park Plaza building.

A full complement of slicers and dicers competed with beds, skin-care products, fancy knife sets and other wares inside the Marketplace Pavilion presented by Honda and Toyota of Santa Maria.

The Marketplace Pavilion also had the new CoastHills wine bar feature, where fairgoers could get a glass of wine and listen to acoustic guitar from a variety of local musicians.

Strolling acts could be found throughout the event making free mini-shows available at all hours. They included Sterling the Bubblesmith, who created clouds of soap bubbles for children to play in, and two princesses providing photo opportunities.

Santa Barbara County Fair features local groups at the Sun Center Stage – The Santa Maria Sun

Santa Barbara County Fair features local groups at the Sun Center Stage
BY JOE PAYNE

The Santa Barbara County Fair is well known for the big-name acts that grace the Main Stage, and for good reason. The likes of LeAnne Rimes and John Michael Montgomery will be stars of the show on that stage, but it’s not the only one featuring live music at the fair.

The Sun Center Stage will host several local bands this year, along with performances by local dance troupes and traveling performers.


TAKING CENTER STAGE
Steppin’ Out, voted Santa Maria’s favorite band, will take the Sun Center Stage on opening day, July 12.

Opening the show at the Sun Center Stage on July 12 is Steppin’ Out, the local dance band that has won Best Band in our annual readers poll many times. Lead singer and founder Mike Ariolla said he was looking forward to seeing the crowd at the show when Steppin’ Out takes the stage.

“It’s a lot of fun,” he said. “There is a big area right in front of the stage for dancing, and that’s what we like to see, is people dancing. Whether it’s a slow song or fast song, it’s just people enjoying the music.”

Other featured performers on the Sun Center Stage include Ricky Montijo and the Mojitos, based out of the five cities area, and Burnin’ James and the Funky Flames from Paso Robles.

The Sun Center Stage is accessible in the middle of the Santa Maria Fairpark among vendors, activities, and other booths. There’s seating and room for dancing, as Ariolla said, with room for many people.

“Whether it’s for a hundred people or a thousand people, we give them the same show we would either case,” Ariolla said. “And for the most part, these shows are family oriented. We have a lot of people who follow us who see us in night clubs, but in this case, it’s bring the whole family.”

The CoastHill Wine Tasting Bar will also feature live local talent at the Santa Barbara County Fair this year.

That venue is indoors, and features singer/songwriters over blasting dance bands. One such performer is Akusaa, who is used to playing her music at local wine tasting rooms.

“I really, really enjoy more of a mature audience,” Akusaa said. “I’m very picky where I play and I’m more about mature adults and elegance—I’m all about elegance.”

The wine tasting area will include a number of local wines, so elegance will definitely be a part of the experience.
Akusaa said that wine drinkers usually enjoy her style, which includes 70’s soft rock, R&B, jazz, and Spanish ballads. She said she hopes to create a “welcome retreat” at the fair from the big crowds where locals can enjoy wine paired with her music.

“My music, it takes them back to either good or bad memories, it’s sentimental,” she said. “They engage and sing along. It’s really great to see the reactions of people when you bring out that music.”

PASO POPS: The Paderewsky Festival provides a patriotic party for Paso Robles – Paso Robles Press

PASO ROBLES — Paso Pops, the annual Paderewski Festival-sponsored concert and Independence Day celebration in Paso Robles combining wine, beer, food, family-friendly activities, live music and fireworks took place on Saturday, July 1 at the Paso Robles Horse Park. The 2017 patriotic “Pops” program was performed by The San Luis Obispo Symphony, Youth Symphony and The Swing Dolls culminating in a spectacular fireworks display.

“The feeling of American patriotism is alive and well here,” said volunteer and Paderewski Festival board member Cri Cri Solak-Eastin. ”It started when the master of ceremonies, Casey Biggs came onto the stage waving a huge American flag. At first people were quiet and then there was this groundswell of applause and people were actually wiping tears from their eyes.”

People seemed to be responding very positively to the changes in the format of the event as well. According to Solak-Eastin, planning began only one week after the last year’s event and the board made every effort to take every comment, complaint and praise into consideration. With that guests experienced two jumbotrons flanking the stage versus just one, an additional set of speakers set halfway back on the field so that those in general admission could enjoy better sound, more organized parking, picnics were allowed in addition to the food trucks and the hours were extended so people could stay for the “after party” featuring Ricky Montijo and the Mojitos instead of fighting traffic to get out. The California Highway Patrol and the Paso Robles’ Police Department helped a lot to make the traffic issues better this year, said Solak-Eastin.

Besides the San Luis Obispo Youth Orchestra enjoying the benefits and experience of having played side by side with the SLO Symphony in both rehearsal hours and regular wages, proceeds from Paso Pops goes to local, non-profit youth arts programs in conjunction with the Paderewski Festival, youth and cultural programs including the Studios on the Park Youth program, the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation and the Paderewski Festival's Youth Piano Competition and International Cultural Exchange.

Second annual Paso Pops event wows crowd – Paso Robles Daily News

Posted: 7:50 am, July 3, 2017 by Reporter Sadie Mae Mace

The second annual Paderewski-sponsored Independence Day celebration, Paso Pops, put on a show to 4000 guests who celebrated at the Paso Robles Horse Park on July 1.

From 5-7:30 p.m., wine enthusiasts flooded the tasting section of the park to sample wine from over 40 featured local wineries. Children were invited to explore the San Luis Obispo Symphony Musical Petting Zoo and interactive arts activities, which were put together by Studios on the Park and the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation.

Festival attendees settled down on the lawn and at their designated tables to enjoy meals pre-ordered from the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, visit food trucks such as Brat Shop, Kona Shaved Ice and World BBQ or unpack their own picnic.

“It’s a very fun event, great wine [and] beer… it’s our first time here,” said Bobby Bracy and Josey Hernandez, who were looking forward to the fireworks display at the end of the evening.

An exciting addition to this year’s Paso Pops was a raffle, with the grand prize being a New Year’s Eve LA experience led by former LA Rams player Dennis Harrah, including transportation from Tesla, wine and food from Cass Winery and tickets to a Rams/49ers game. Second prize will escort its winner around Paso Robles with the sponsorship of SummerWood Winery & Inn, Mistura Restaurant and Cass Winery. Third prize was a luxurious experience by the River Oaks Spa, Hotel Cheval and the Paso Robles Inn restaurant, The Steakhouse. All proceeds will benefit local non-profit youth arts programs, with individual tickets selling for $50 and a deal of three tickets for $100.

To start the performance, Paso Wine Man and emcee Casey Biggs parachuted with an American flag towards the field to cheers from the crowd.

Towards the end of the event, the San Luis Obispo Symphony and members of the Youth Symphony, led by guest conductor Christopher J. Woodruff, commenced their “Pops” program. For 90 minutes, guests enjoyed pieces such as “America the Beautiful” by Ward and Dragon, “Variations on a Shaker Melody” by Aaron Copland and a stunning finale of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture”, accompanied by cannons and fireworks.

Other performances included The Swing Dolls of Los Angeles with “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Salute to the Armed Forces” among others, and Jack Raventos with Rachmaninoff”s “Prelude in G, Op. 23 No. 5” and Sarah Girges with Chopin/Liszt’s “The Maiden’s Wish”, the winners of the Paderewski Festival Youth Piano Competition. Alodie Ayers, the Singing Hands Children’s Choir and Paso Robles High School Advanced Choir sung the “Star-Spangled Banner”. The after party music following the fireworks show was led by Ricky Montijo and the Mojitos.

“I’m so excited it’s here… 11 months in the planning,” said Joel Peterson, who is Treasurer on the Board of Directors for the Paderewski Festival, adding that traffic was not an issue and the weather was favorable.
