There are also festivals, follies, feathered friends and a whole lot of fun things to do. Have you ever wanted to bust out with some roller derby skating moves, learn more about one of Monterey Bay’s misunderstood sea creatures or find out what actually lives in that local lagoon you pass by each day? Well, here’s your chance.

With so many events lined up, no one can say it’s the “same old, same old” around Santa Cruz County this weekend!

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

Some of the most anticipated festivals of the year are happening this weekend around Santa Cruz. Though some see this as summer’s last hurrah, we locals know it’s just the beginning of great weather and good times ahead.

In addition to celebrations of art, wine, mole, mariachis, and all things Greek, you can learn how to survive in the wilderness, watch a movie at the beach with the kids, attend a comedy competition, and tour some fabulous art exhibits, too.

Have fun this weekend, Santa Cruz!

You’ll find movies and bands on the beach, tequila and tacos in the park, and a derby doubleheader downtown.

Dogs get their own pool party and some of our favorite local stores have banded together for a one-day sale you definitely don’t want to miss.
