This weekend the Santa Ynez Valley is drawing cowboy art enthusiasts to the 30th Annual Vaquero Show and Sale.
The 30th annual Vaquero Show starts Saturday at the Santa Ynez Valley Historical Museum.
Fifty noted artists, craftsman and collectors from around the western U.S. will be displaying and selling their custom vaquero cowboy-styled goods.
This is the largest of its kind in California, and is expected to draw in around two thousand people over the weekend.
The event also helps to keep the museum going.
The museum’s executive director, Chris Bashforth said, “It’s a fundraiser for us. We do provide a venue for the vendors to sell their wear, but we also have a big dinner on Friday night and a live auction, which brings in a good portion of our operation revenue.”
Tickets for the show are $5, and the fundraising dinner and auction will be Friday night
Tickets are $55 for museum members, and $65 for non-members.
