Amador Fair honors cowboys

By
From page B3 | July 23, 2014 |

In recognition of the many contributions that the cowboy has made and is still making to Amador County and the state of California, the Amador County Fair, July 24-27, will feature special events and acknowledgements for “National Day of the Cowboy” on Saturday, July 26.

The music and lifestyle of the cowboy will be featured throughout the fair with music provided by several country, western, Cajun and traditional performers.

On June 7, 2012, the California Senate voted to award permanent status to the fourth Saturday in July as “National Day of the Cowboy.” Many other states and counties throughout the United States will also sponsor special events to celebrate their western heritage.

The Amador County Fair will present a rodeo by the California Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association (CCPRCA) beginning at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Bull riding, saddle and bareback riding along with all other events associated with professional rodeo will be presented.

Cowboy entertainer/lecturer Larry Maurice will emcee many of the cowboy activities at the fair.

Maurice has spent the last 35 years as a cowboy/wrangler/poet/announcer and spokesperson for all things cowboy. He will also be a featured performer each day during the run of the fair.

The Amador County fair is noted for its equestrian and cowboy events. The Benny Brown arena will feature a full line-up of activities starting on Wednesday, July 23, with wagon driving exhibitions and competitions, concluding on Sunday with various ranch/cattle-related team events.

The Amador County Fair, July 24-27, is exactly what a county fair is supposed to be. Everything is there from livestock shows to arts and crafts of all types, a Demolition Derby, a hypnotist, jugglers and the Miss Amador County Rodeo Queen.

For more information about the fair call 209-245-6921 or visit the Website at AmadorCountyFair.com. For more information about National Day of the Cowboy visit nationaldayofthecowboy.com.
