Listen up! Right around the corner is the 59th annual Conejo Valley Days.

May 7th-10th, Conejo Creek Park in Thousand Oaks.

Participate in The Oaks Mile 5K, Outhouse races (Yes, outhouse races- this is their 3rd annual race), or stuff yourself with one of the many delicious food vendors.

Conejo Valley Days hasn't always been like it is now. In the late 40's, at the old Jungleland compound (now the site of the Civic Arts Plaza), Conejo Valley Days was a "Community Circus" according to an article in the Oak Post Newspaper. Special appearances by "moving picture actors" and the crowning of a Circus Queen made the event a draw and success. As it grew, Conejo Valley Days added more attractions including the first Whiskeroo Contest (38 bearded and mustachioed gents entered) and a Ladies Western Dress Contest where 31 ladies put on their Western best. A BBQ was added to feed the crowds and help raise dollars for local causes. Since then it has grown into a large philthropic community event with over 26,000 in attendance last year.

You can get your tickets online or at the welcome tent.
