Be sure to stop by the Friends table at the Santa Cruz County History Fair on Saturday, May 14, from 12 to 4 p.m. Historical organizations from around the county will showcase artifacts, photographs, publications, and have hands-on activities.

The first of these fairs was organized by the Friends in 2015. The Friends hosted a second one in 2016, and the Capitola Historical Museum hosted one in 2019. This year's fair will be an indoor/outdoor event at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History, 705 Front Street, Santa Cruz. Admission is free, but donations are welcome.

These history fairs have proven to be very popular. It is always amazing to see how much interest there is in Santa Cruz County history and the large number of organizations involved, including museums, libraries, societies, book publishers, and parks. The fair is basically "one-stop shopping" for local history.
