As the Santa Clarita Valley gets ready to celebrate 25 years of the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival, one of the constants that remain just as popular today is, of course, Cowboy Peach Cobbler.
The peach cobbler, which is made at a booth hosted by the Rotary Club of Santa Clarita Valley, considers the festival one of its biggest fundraisers of the year, according to Tami Edwards, and the proceeds support the organization’s Newhall Rotary Community Foundation.
“The Cowboy Festival has been a tradition in the Santa Clarita Valley for many years, and the Rotary Club of Santa Clarita Valley is honored to be a big part of that tradition in serving peach cobbler, which enables us to give back to the community,” said Tom Cole, president of the Rotary Club of Santa Clarita Valley. “All proceeds are returned to the community through donations to our local nonprofits.”
For example, a few days before the festival, Family Promise of SCV received a donation Wednesday from the Rotary Club that’s helped Family Promise increase the number of clients it serves from 170 in 2017 to 528 in 2018.
Dozens of Rotarians pitch in on the effort to help run the booth throughout the weekend.
The Cowboy Peach Cobbler portions are $8 for a regular portion and $9 a la mode.
