This wonderful event is a fundraiser to benefit the children’s education programs at the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve, and a celebration of the ranching and cowboy way-of–life. The Jubilee Dinner, Dance and Concerts at the Ranch begins on July 17 at 3:00 pm and will feature 3 shows, dinner, dance, western artisans, historical displays and specialized vendors, silent and live auctions.
Last year, the Cowboy Jubilee was rated as one of the top five events of the year in the Temecula Valley by local media. The spotlight continues on the Jubilee for a 4th year to musically, poetically, and historically celebrate the rich and colorful American ranching and cowboy-way-of life.
This year the Jubilee will be held at the Murrieta Equestrian Center (formerly the Murrieta Stud Ranch) in the western rural area behind Historic Downtown Murrieta. Hosted by the City of Murrieta and its 60-acre facility, the Jubilee will feature three components:
