The Next Event

Event Santa Cruz  1973

For what ever reason, what ever was in the water, 1973 was an explosive and successful year for Santa Cruz businesses. It’s just amazing when we started digging and finding all the iconic Santa Cruz businesses that started that year. For 42 years these businesses have been making their mark on the Santa Cruz community.

But what was happening in 1973, what was Santa Cruz like then? Why did these people decide to start their business then? It is time to hear from the juggernauts themselves.

Welcome to Event Santa Cruz 1973.

We are excited to have this months event at the new retail location - Berdels @ 1233 Pacific Ave.
