CRC Boosts Santa Clarita Cowboy Fest

California Resources Corp. has signed on as presenting sponsor for the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival. Festivities will be held in William S. Hart Park in Old Town Newhall, on April 13 and 14. The city of Santa Clarita organizes the festival, and admission is free to the public. “CRC is dedicated to partnering with the City of Santa Clarita to support programs and activities that strengthen our community and champion local priorities,” Todd Stevens, chief executive of Chatsworth-based CRC, said in a statement. Festival entertainment will include live music across five stages; stations for knife throwing, archery, and mechanical bull-riding; a western shopping center with vendors selling functional cowboy gear; and tours of Rancho Camulos Museum and Hart Mansion. Santa Clarita businesses can participate in a “Best in the West” competition to see who can most convincingly decorate their storefront in the spirit of the Wild West. The winner will receive four VIP passes to the festival, as well as a trophy to be awarded at the Senses Cowboy Roundup, the festival’s official after-party, which will feature music from Whiskey Tango, mechanical bull rides, line dancing, trick roping, gourmet food trucks, and street performers, according to the party’s Facebook page. For the first time, this year’s festival is slated to feature a “Cowboy Cook-Off” on April 13, to determine which pit master can truly claim the best BBQ in L.A. There will also be a separate “Chili Cook-Off” on April 14. Proceeds from these competitions will support Bridge to Home, a Santa Clarita nonprofit that fights homelessness.
