This year marks the 2nd annual Capitola Beach Festival where party-goers can enjoy fun events over the whole weekend.
There’s a three-mile fun run hosted by the Wharf to Wharf, as well as a horseshoe tournament, a lighted nautical parade, and a fishing derby.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! You can enter into the sand sculpture contest and the chalk art event to show off your artistic talents. One of the most popular events at this beach festival is the rowboat races. Participate or cheer for your friends to paddle as fast as they can!
During the evenings, you can dance and sing at the outdoor concerts at Esplanade Park.
This event is friendly for the whole family, so bring your kids along with you!
This great Santa Cruz event offers the perfect blend of amusement park food and the regions best craft beers.
As you walk along the city’s beach boardwalk, sample tasty foods, like corn dogs, garlic fries, and chocolate covered bacon. You can pair these meals with a cold pint of beer made from local breweries.
These breweries are challenged to pick their best brew to pair with these carnival foods.
