Don’t miss it! The first Rancho Santa Fe “Rancho Days” event is going on in RSF.
Rancho Days, formerly an annual event, is now held every two years. The project was founded by longtime resident Gordy Bartow. In 1993, Bartrow had the idea to bring together all nonprofit organizations of Rancho Santa Fe in one collaborative event.
Since its beginnings, Rancho Days has been a celebrated way for the community to get together and celebrate the town’s heritage while also promoting partnerships between various community organizations.
This year, Rancho Days Chairman is Shannon Mountain. The event promises to host a stew of exciting and fun events for every member of the family to enjoy. Below are a few of the activities:
