This Weekend in Santa Cruz: July 22nd – 24th, 2016

This Weeekend in-2

We have a great lineup of local theatre up ahead. While Santa Cruz Shakespeare continues a Midsummer Night’s Dream in the Grove (new venue!), two new musicals open this weekend: Fiddler on the Roof and Dorothy Potter and the Wizards of Oz.

Don’t forget, the Wharf to Wharf is this Sunday. If you’re trying to avoid the crowds it could be a good time to drive up Highway 1 and catch a Pokémon or two.

This Weekend in Santa Cruz: June 24th – 26th, 2016

santa cruz weekend events, june 24-26, 2016

There’s good news and bad news when it comes to this weekend.

First the good news:

There are some amazing summer events you won’t want to miss.

Now the bad news:

There’s possibly too many great events for one weekend, meaning you have the difficult task of deciding which events to attend, and which ones you will have to miss out on.

We feel your pain. Here’s how bad it gets…

On Saturday there is the Pleasure Point Street Fair, Woodies on the Wharf, Hop ‘N Barley Beer & BBQ Festival in Scotts Valley, the 41st annual Strawberry Festival downtown, and the Sip & Stroll wine tasting event in Soquel Village…all at the same time!

We hope you enjoy the weekend, whatever you decide to do. See the full list of events below:
