Borrego Days Desert Festival has a long history of being "the" launch event for Southern California's Desert Region's new season.  Enticing locals to come together after a long hot summer and to welcome snowbirds back for the fabulous desert weather, this highly anticipated event comes to the delight of adults and children.

On Saturday, festival goers will line the main street for the popular parade that includes a flyover, equestrians, marching bands, floats, clowns, and dancers. Artists, food vendors, children's activities, beer & beverage garden, commercial grade carnival fun zone (includes inflatable water slides, obstacle course, bull rides and more) and the air show is expanding, outdoor shopping, collector automobiles, audience choice competitions and more.  All of this in a party filled atmosphere fun for the entire family and located in the middle of town at the historic Christmas Circle. 

And don't forget to join us for Pints 4 the Park, a fundraiser being held just outside of Borrego Outfitters in The Mall! 3 - 5 p.m.

Our Archaeology and Paleontology volunteer societies will be having open houses again this year on Saturday and Sunday. Follow this link for more information.
