Oxnard Mayor John Zaragoza and the City Council welcomed the Dallas Cowboys back to Oxnard for their 15th training camp in Oxnard on Saturday, July 24, 2021. A capacity crowd attended the opening ceremony to welcome the Cowboys back to the West Coast home for America’s team.

The City of Oxnard has had the pleasure of hosting the Dallas Cowboys nearly every year since 2002. This year, Mayor Zaragoza welcomed Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy to his inaugural trip to Oxnard, and applauded quarterback Dak Prescott’s speedy recovery and return to the field.

“We want to say how excited we all are—the City of Oxnard, its residents, and its visitors—to be able to open the City to the Dallas Cowboys again,” said Mayor Zaragoza. “This is a time of year that we all truly look forward to and we are so happy you are back.”

Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said, “We are grateful to our fans who travel to our training camps here in California and we appreciate the warm reception that the City of Oxnard has always provided.  This is our summer home, and it is a wonderful setting to host this very important part of our team building process.  We are thrilled to be back.”
