Anza Days

First some history for those new to Anza.


 Each year since about 1932 Anza has held this annual event.   Legend has it that it started as a way to support the local volunteer fire station and new truck.   Regardless the tradition has lived on and it's always different each year with classic cars, floats, horses, tractors, etc coming down the street in the parade.


Since 1976 the local Anza Lions Club & Thimble Club has kept this proud tradition alive for our town single handedly. 

In 2006 the Anza Lions Club President Roland Vellanoweth invited the other organizations in town to own various parts of Anza Days. 

The Chamber of Commerce arranges entertainment in the park

The ACIL arranges the vendor booths in the park.  

Historically the Anza Lions has hosted the Friday dinner dance for the benefit of the Community Hall until 2015 when the Hall took that duty over.   

The Thimble Club provides the Saturday breakfast. 

The Anza Lions Club arranges the parade as well as has the responsibility of chairing the Anza Days over all event.

The Anza Lions Club takes great pride in continuing the responsibility for the Anza Days Festivities!


  It's a great family day brought to you by the many volunteers and good hearted people of our small town.
