This is the weekend that art fans wait for all year. It’s also a weekend packed with an incredible variety of fun events.

You can choose from Open Studios or Open Streets (or better yet, go to both!), enjoy fireworks, watch a busy downtown street transform into an all-ages playground, and welcome back our beloved monarchs.

Event planners also seem to be betting big that people will be really hungry this weekend as there are some epic food and beverage related events to choose from.

Oh, and it’s First Friday…and we’ve barely scratched the surface.

See the full lineup below, and have a great weekend!

The leaves are starting to change color and pumpkins are on display once again as a warm fall weekend is approaching quickly. Soak in the sunshine and fresh air with several fall festivals, a celebration in California’s first state park and even a gathering of food trucks with a theme from a galaxy far, far away.

From Arabic poetry to an event about vanilla, this weekend has it all.

The first weekend of fall is upon us. The air is still warm and there is much fun to be had. Watch a play, listen to music indoors or out, rally together for some local businesses, do a little birdwatching, tour a slough, and more.

You can even sample some coffee that you will definitely need if you do everything on this list. Well, maybe it would be best to just pick a few and go from there.

You’re in for a great first autumn weekend, Santa Cruz style.
