Church Street Fair

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 wine. Non-stop performances from global traditions will keep your spirits high as you select from a variety of local food purveyors, vintners and brewers, and explore the work of dozens of regional artists and craftspeople. 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. Held in August in front of the Civic Auditorium in downtown Santa Cruz, the 27 year-old Church Street Fair is treasured as the quintessential summertime festival. The Church Street Fair is a collaboration between the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music and the City of Santa Cruz’ Civic Auditorium.
