The festivities now known as Western Days started in 1950, now celebrating its 67th year.

Since 1970, the community of Valley Center has had a Parade during the Memorial Day weekend. This year, the newly formed Valley Center Western Days, Inc. group has taken direct responsibity to stage the parade for the community. Valley Center Western Days needs to raise between $10,000 – $12,000 to pay for the expenses of the parade. These expenses include traffic engineering and control, permits, equipment and other related expenses. We would like to solicit your organization to contribute to the success of the parade. This year all parade expenses will be viewable by the public on our website financials page. We are also trying to get considerable assistance from the community for this effort.

This parade will occur, there is no doubt, we are not going to threaten to pull the parade if pledges are not made by a certain date. This is a Valley Center tradition and the parade committee is fully committed to making the parade happen.

Since the new Western Days organization is waiting for an official non profit status, this year through the generousity of the Valley Center Kiwanis Foundation, we are using their tax exempt organization for collecting tax deductible donations for the parade. These funds will be held in a separate account and maintained without cost by the Kiwanis Club. Next year Valley Center Western Days will have their tax exempt status finalized.

We have several sponsorship levels based on donation amounts but we look forward to people and organizations donating what they can afford to make this event the best it can be. If you have questions or requests for your sponsorship please call the number below or email and we will be happy to discuss your needs. A table of sposorship levels is on page two.

The EIN for the Valley Center Kiwanis Foundation is 47‐4040893, please make out any checks to the Valley Center Kiwanis Foundation with Western Days in the Memo line. You will receive an acknowledgement by email or regular mail as soon as your donation is received.
