Fall Festivals are Underway - Don't Miss Out on Special Events or the Chance to Win Big!

Can you feel it? A refreshing sharpness to the breeze, a satisfying crunch underfoot when you're walking through the park, a desire to snuggle up with a hot spiced beverage? It's finally fall, which means that some of the year's most highly-anticipated events are already underway, with no signs of slowing down! Autumn often delivers the best weather of the year to Santa Cruz County, but also marks the back-to-school season, so hotels are offering some sweet deals due to fewer crowds! Visit Santa Cruz is celebrating fall by giving away mini vacations and tickets to exciting events for all ages and interests. Follow us on Facebook to enter the Fall Festival Fridays' weekly mini-Santa Cruz vacation contests with hotel stays and more, and our Instagram for event ticket giveaways throughout the season!
