This Weekend in Santa Cruz: December 7th – 9th, 2018

What do breweries, libraries, and female mariachis have in common? They are all featured in our jam-packed Weekend Roundup, along with holiday craft fairs and events.

This is also a great weekend to support local artists. Take a First Friday art tour, wander the Westside open studios on Saturday, or enjoy a Sunday drive to Davenport to visit an art collective by the sea.

This Weekend in Santa Cruz: November 16th – 18th, 2018

Ready or not, the holidays are coming! We found some fun events to get you into the holiday spirit.

Enjoy a classic Christmas play or go ice skating by the beach. Get a head start on your gift list by shopping local artisan craft and wreath sales, or make something yourself.

If you are not quite ready to deck the halls, take heart. You can go wine-tasting, hear some local stories and hear the Youth Symphony debut a Korean-inspired composition.
