CREATE YOUR OWN MUSIC this summer, with a calendar full of cultural events. Kick it off with art and music at the beach! And the Bard is back, with all new productions by Santa Cruz Shakespeare – presented in a forested glen. Want to be inspired by the work of local artists at a pet-friendly event? Head to an art and wine festival with your favorite mutt. Or take in a splashy, Broadway-style performance. And for an eclectic sound, the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music brings fresh new beats to the music landscape. At the end of the day, relax on the sand with a free summertime concert on the beach in Capitola or Santa Cruz. And what better way to celebrate summer than with a glass of suds? Check out these new brew spots in Santa Cruz, California's next craft beer destination!
