Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2016, the Church Street Fair offers an inspiring immersion into the famously vibrant cultural scene of Santa Cruz, California, as expressed through music, dance, art, food, and beer, wine. Non-stop music and dance from across the globe will keep your spirits high as local DJ and emcee Brett Taylor introduces performers from the Church Street Stage. You’ll select from a variety of local food purveyors, vintners and brewers, and explore the work of dozens of regional artists and craftspeople. Held each year in early August in front of the Civic Auditorium in downtown Santa Cruz, the Church Street Fair is the quintessential summertime festival. Free activities for children and their families include the Creativity Tent for Kids and the Cabrillo Festival’s Free Family Concert with Tour of the Orchestra.
