OC Fairgrounds Preservation Society reports successful weekend of fund raising and outreach.

Thank you to all the volunteers and customers!!!

We had a successful weekend of  Fund Raising and Outreach
at the OC Market Place


Help SAVE the OC Fairgrounds
In spite of overwhelming opposition from legislators and the public at large, the Governor continues to push for the sale of Orange County Fairgrounds to a private developer.  The process has been flawed from the start. Litigation has been filed.  We could lose OUR fairgrounds, including the Orange County Market Place, Centennial Farms and the equestrian center.  There’s still time to act.  We can stop the sale but we need your help!
Mark your calendars for our next fundraising weekend, December 18 and 19, one hundred percent of  proceeds from sales of Bob’s Ice Cream at the OC Market Place will go to the fight to save the equestrian center  and stop the sale.  For a minimum donation can get an ice cream and help save the fairgrounds, too.  Look for the booth under the giant Pepsi at the OC Market Place.
Please help support the OCFPS!  Come and enjoy an ice cream!!!
Volunteers Needed! We are also looking for volunteers to hand out fliers and work at the outreach booth on December 18 and 19.  We are doing short shifts of a few hours.  WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please email Lisa at info@ocfpreservationsociety.org
“The entire sale has been orchestrated by the governor’s office to benefit FMW.”  said Costa Mesa Councilwoman Katrina Foley
Assemblyman Jim Silva has said, “… selling the Fairgrounds just doesn’t make sense.”

Assemblyman Jose Solorio stated, “I and others will continue to fight to preserve the OC Fair, the equestrian facility and the talented staff that run the fairgrounds.”

Legislation action to stop the sale of OC Fairgrounds is also in the works.  Stay tuned!

Over the last year the OCFPS has incurred many expenses. The effort to protect and preserve the OC Fairgrounds has been expensive. In our fight to preserve our OC Fairgrounds we have incurred legal fees, printing costs and other expenses, all critical components of our campaign to save the OC Fairgrounds.
