Support Conejo Valley Days

Support Conejo Valley Days

This is a time to celebrate.

Conejo Valley Days, one of the most successful community events in the entire U.S., culminates this week with a carnival through Sunday and a parade on Saturday. The carnival features rides for all ages, an exhibitors’ tent, entertainment, and plenty of food and beverages. Most of the vendors are helping worthy causes, so be sure to support them. More than 70 are nonprofit organizations. The carnival hours are 5 to 10 p.m. today, 5 p.m. to midnight tomorrow, noon to midnight on Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday. The carnival site is east of the 23 Freeway at Janss Road in Thousand Oaks. Just follow the signs.

Highlights of the carnival include rodeos at 1 and 4 p.m. on Saturday and 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and students, $3 for kids 6 to 12 and it’s free for youngsters under 6 who are accompanied by an adult guardian.

If you haven’t made plans, CVD is celebrating Family Fun Night this evening. You can get a wristband for $17 (not including admission) and take unlimited rides until closing time. The kids will have a ball and you save money.

And don’t forget the parade at 9 a.m. on Saturday. You’ll enjoy small-town ambience and a friendly crowd. The parade starts in the 3500 block of E. Thousand Oaks Blvd. and proceeds west to Erbes Road. Arrive early and bring a lawn chair.

Conejo Valley Days brings people together to celebrate our little part of the world.

Become part of it and it becomes part of you.
