Press Release: Silverado Canyon, CA, July. 2011 – Come on out to Silverado 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 40th 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, family games and silly ‘ole timey’ contests, all nestled under the Oak trees below Orange County’s famous Saddleback Mountain.

The 41st ANNUAL SILVERADO COUNTRY FAIR & Art Festival kicks off 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 opens at 10:00 AM with live performances of music, dancing and gun ‘slingin’ fun, local art & craft merchants and the “by golly tastiest and wholesomest country cookin’ ya ever ate” both Saturday and Sunday. Highlighting the event will be the Silverado Characters, old town reenactment group, infamous for “robbing” local stores, shooting varmints, and getting everyone in the spirit of the “Wild West!”  Country, Bluegrass, and Classic Rock bands will entertain throughout the day, with an extended evening event on Saturday night. The Saturday Night BLUES Fest will rock the canyons with live Blues from 5-9 pm with special guest performances by veteran blues musicians with SOUL! (2011 Bands TBA)

The Silverado Country Fair is held at the Silverado Community Center, 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
