Read on! You’ll find lots more, including applications for booths, entertainers, and food vendors, as well as photo and art contest information.
Theme: “Picturesque Penasquitos”
Photo Contest: Amateur and professional photographers alike are invited to snap and submit images to showcase the unique spirit of life in Penasquitos. We can’t wait to see what aspects of our community’s personality you can capture. All entries will be displayed at the Fiesta and prizes will be awarded in various categories. We hope to have the images displayed thereafter at the PQ library and digitally on our web site. Please click here for the official flyer and application.
Poster Contest: Our Fiesta poster contest was open to 4th and 5th graders who live in PQ. The winner’s artwork will be featured on all Fiesta t-shirts, posters, program covers, and other advertisements. Students were asked to draw a picture that illustrates this year’s theme (“Picturesque Pensaquitos”). All entries received will be displayed throughout the street fair the day of the event. Our 2013 Poster Contest winner is Nathan Chuang from Park Village Elementary:
More information: Every year, approximately 15,000 people set foot in Rancho Peñasquitos to attend the annual “Fiesta de los Penasquitos” community festival. The Fiesta is a family oriented annual street faire that’s been an annual event since 1995. Organized and sponsored by the Rancho Penasquitos Town Council, all proceeds from the event are returned to the community in the form of grant awards to individuals and groups.
The 2012 Fiesta featured four unique zones: the “family fun zone”, the “adventure zone”, the “community zone” and the “carnival zone”. Over 150 vendors provided arts & crafts, food, home improvement tips, a rock climbing wall and a Fiesta Fun Tent for children of all ages. There was truly something for everyone!
Classic Car Show: New this year! More info coming soon.
PQ 5K Fun Run: For the second year in a row, we’re also partnering with the PQ 5K Fun Run to make the Fiesta a full weekend of family fun. The run will take place on Saturday, May 4, and will be a great precursor to the street fair on Sunday! Click here for more info and to pre-register.
