Sagebrush Days event promotes community spirit in San Miguel

SAN MIGUEL — Food, fun, shopping and more will be coming to San Miguel April 22 and the town hosts its 27th annual Sagebrush Day's event.

Hosted by the San Miguel Chamber of Commerce, Sagebrush Days has in recent years become both a parade and peddler's fair, San Miguel Chamber of Commerce Secretary Miki Landseadel-Sanders said.

The old-fashioned good time will kick off in the early morning with a home-cooked breakfasts from favorite local eateries, followed by the opening of the Sagebrush Peddlers Faire, a traditional western wear sidewalk sale. The sale, which is scheduled to run all day long from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., will feature antiques, crafts, cowboy gear and leather goods, tack, quilts and more. There will also be several booths selling locally produced preserves, pies and other homemade foods not sold anywhere else!

After visiting the Faire, guests can watch the highly-anticipated Sagebrush Days Parade, which starts at 11 a.m., and features groups and organizations with a historical or agricultural perspective of San Luis Obispo County.

"Both events have seen a wide variety of participation," Landseadel-Sanders said. "Groups as diverse as Lillian Larsen School's PTO, the Vaqueros Equestrian Riding Group, the Sheriffs Posse, Model A Club and the San Miguel Volunteer Firefighters will hold forth, along with several other individuals and organizations."

As if that wasn't enough, guests can also join in on even more fun by playing Chick Patty Bingo or dancing to some live music. For anyone that gets hungry throughout the day there will be plenty of food to grub on too. Although San Miguel is famous for its selection of authentic Mexican cuisine, like Dos Hermanos on 10th St. and Tacos Mafia on 14 St., the Sagebrush Days event will also offer a variety of other food selections including barbecue from the Lions Club and ice cream sundaes from the Native Sons. Guests looking for a more traditional dessert are also encouraged to bake and bring in their own apple pies to the Country Diner for the afternoon's pie contest. Either way, there will surely be a dessert to cure every kind of sweet tooth!

Sagebrush Days, with the assistance of several local sponsors, was originally formed in the interest of creating and promoting a better sense of community spirit in San Migeul — one hopefully based on historical significance, Landseadel-Sanders said.
