The festivities now known as Western Days which started in 1950, is celebrating its 68th year. It continues to be the largest event of the year for the area. Since 1970, as part of Western Days, the community has had a parade during the Memorial Day weekend.

Valley Center Western Days, Inc. is the 501(c)3 non-profit organization responsible for producing and staging the parade for the community.  It consists of volunteers from the community.

We’re excited to announce that we have added a new event to our schedule: The Guns & Hoses Chili Cook-off!  Fire, Sheriff, CHP and Tribal Police from Valley Center, Pauma, Pala, Rincon, San Pasqual, La Jolla and CalFire are joining forces to battle it out with their cooking skills. Service clubs, businesses and individuals are also welcome to join the battle. The fun begins at 6:00 p.m., Thursday May 24 at the Valley Center Fire Station on Lilac Road.  The Valley Center Library will also hold their annual Carnival Wednesday, May 23.  Our local Rotary Club returns for their pancake breakfast Saturday morning at 7 a.m. before the parade. Additionally, the Valley Center’s Marshals Posse, Outlaws and Floozies will return to take over the town.

Valley Center Western Days needs to raise funds to pay for the parade expenses. 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 is a Valley Center tradition, and the parade committee is fully committed to making the parade happen.

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 us and we will be happy to discuss your needs. A table of sponsorship levels is on page two.
