This Weekend in Santa Cruz: August 23rd – 25th, 2019

School is starting, but the weekend’s events offer the right medicine to cure the back to school blues. 

Kick back in the great outdoors for a movie, or dance the night away, you’ve got lots of fun choices on Friday.

Make your mark painting a mural, become an expert dahlia grower, or learn about animal rescues, and still have time to taste tequila or see the Derby double header!

Sunday brings a magic/comedy show and a rockin’ community fundraiser.

This Weekend in Santa Cruz: August 9th – 11th, 2019

Summer vacation is quickly waning, but you can make the most of it with lots of special events to choose from.

Full Moon madness at Henry Cowells is always a thrill, but you can also catch an amazing Broadway variety show, a concert at the beach or sample local cuisine and music at the Food Lounge.

Saturday and Sunday’s offerings are just as varied; you can be outside or inside, learning, listening to music or watching art take place before your eyes.

This Weekend in Santa Cruz: August 2nd – 4th, 2019

The first weekend of the month is always a treat because of First Friday and all the shops, salons and galleries around town that open their doors to display the work of our talented local art community. 

This weekend and next brings to town a world-class contemporary music festival that will not fail to impress and inspire.

And lucky for us, there are lots of ways this weekend to get out and celebrate the diversity and beauty of our awesome county, from the Church Street Fair to the Watsonville Strawberry Festival.
