Santa Clara Community Activities: From Free Music to Film Festivals

One of the many appealing aspects of the city of Santa Clara is the community events taking place throughout the year. Annual events in this Northern California city include community marathons, parades, festivals, Easter egg hunts, film festivals, Halloween celebrations at the California's Great America theme park, an annual performance of the Nutcracker in December and free summer concerts.

Santa Clara community events offer a little something for every taste and level of interest. Those looking to participate in community events will appreciate the Silicon Valley Duck Race. The Bird and Butterfly Festival is perfect for those with an appreciation of nature. Looking for a good movie? Movie screenings and film festivals are scheduled throughout the year. Sports fans can spend a summer evening cheering on the Earthquakes, the city's Major League Soccer team. Those with an appreciation of architecture will enjoy tours of historic city homes and neighborhoods.

Community events include a full range of entertainment from art displays and wine sampling to tasting delicious local foods. There's even an annual street dance complete with live music. Local schools often invite the public to enjoy marching band competitions, plays and talent shows. Local bars and restaurants often hold weekly events including karaoke nights and free or happy hour drink nights. Local activities include sampling delicacies at afternoon tea to watching fashion shows. A sense of community is important no matter where you are and in Santa Clara you will find it in abundance.

Santa Clara museums bring several national and international exhibits to the city all year round. Those looking to sample farm fresh food can find it any time of year in Santa at the city's year-round farmers market. Most city events are free to all who wish to attend or participate. Many area attractions offer discounts for families, children and seniors. Santa Clara CA community articles like this only offer a sampling of what Santa Clara has to offer.
